NEWPORT-The Department of Children's Services and a Newport Police Department patrolman responded on Friday, Oct. 5, to a call of alleged child neglect and possible drug use at a residence on Lincoln Avenue, the NPD reported.

The police and DCS went to the residence, where the mother of two children residing there invited them in, Patrolman Robby McMahan reported.

McMahan stated that in the back room, he noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the area of a man who lives with the mother. The man allegedly admitted he had smoked a small amount of marijuana just minutes before the police arrived.
