What began as a CPS investigation in Delta County ended in the arrest of Justin Scott Crawford, 33, of Commerce. Crawford and his one year old child tested positive for methamphetamine. Crawford tests showed a level that reflected constant use. The child tested in the moderate use range.
During the investigation, CPS contacted Special Crimes Unit officers, who also began an investigation. Crawford’s residence is a Commerce address in Delta County. The investigation led to a Delta County warrant for Abandon/Endangering a Child, a State Jail Felony.
Crawford is in Hopkins County Jail held on a $20,000 bond.
