Abilene woman arrested after young child tests positive for cocaine, other drugs

Husband previously arrested on same charge

ABILENE, Texas - Police on Wednesday arrested a 23-year-old Abilene woman for endangering a child after her 2-year-old tested positive for cocaine, heroin, morphine and marijuana.

Kiana Crain had previously been featured – along with her husband Kevin Bernard Harris – as part of the Abilene Police Department’s “Wanted Wednesday” effort.

Harris was arrested in late September on the same charge.  Crain wasn't arrested then.

Crain was taken into custody on the child endangerment charge Wednesday. She remained jailed Thursday on a $10,000 bond.

According to court documents, CPS was notified that Harris and Crain had been smoking “crack all day every day with a child in the house.”

A hair follicle test was performed by the Texas Alcohol and Drug Test Services in June and determined the young girl under the couple’s care had tested positive for multiple drugs.

In an interview, Harris told the Abilene Police Department he went to a party prior to the drug test. When asked why his child would have tested positive for drugs, Harris said, “he probably had residue on his hands from when he ingested.”

Crain told police she and her husband had gone to a party in Abilene, where she, too, ingested cocaine.
