TROY, Missouri (KMOV.com) – A Troy woman faces charges after she allegedly allowed her 16-year-old daughter and another 15-year-old girl to take “bath salts,” an illegal synthetic drug used to get high.
Tina Boyd, 41, was charged with child endangerment. Irvin E. Risley, who gave the teenagers the drug, was also charged with child endangerment, resisting arrest and several counts of drug possession.
According to court documents, officers on Friday visited the Luxury Inn in the 100 block of Kings Drive in Troy after getting a call of possible child endangerment.
When they arrived, officers met with the 16-year-old, who appeared to be under the influence of drugs, according to court documents. The girl told officers that she was allowed to smoke and snort a substance called “White Surge” in the room by Risley and her mother.
According to court documents, “White Surge,” is labeled “not for human consumption.”
Boyd admitted giving her daughter the powder and told police her daughter had gone with Risley to his home and had supplied it, police said. The teen said Risley had also completed a drug transaction while at his house.
A 15-year-old girl also admitted to being at the hotel the night before and used some of the powder, police said.
Police said Risley was arrested outside the hotel and got into an altercation with officers as he was being handcuffed.
Investigators searched Risley’s house and found marijuana, other controlled substances and drug paraphernalia, court documents say.
