Two Roseburg parents who took their 2-year-old to the emergency room because she was acting abnormally have been arrested after tests showed methamphetamine in her system. Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwes Hutson says investigators found drug paraphernalia with meth residue in the home, and they concluded the child got into the drug on her own. He says her condition is not believed to be life-threatening. There are two more girls in the home, ages 10 years old and 5 months. The state Department of Human Services is involved in the case. The parents are 40-year-old Michelle Burke and 44-year-old James Pohl. They were booked on charges of child neglect, endangering the welfare of a minor, and methamphetamine possession.
