AKRON, OH (WOIO) - The mother of a toddler who had to be revived with Narcan this week was jailed on charges unrelated to the overdose earlier. She has since bounded out.
According to police, Desire Destanie T. Carter, 25, of Gale Street in Akron was locked up in the Portage County Jail on felony theft charges. No charges have been filed in the overdose case.
Carter's 1-year-old was rushed to Akron Children's Hospital Thursday. Police said that Carter called 911 first, but the call was disconnected. Carter's 9-year-old son was able to call back and give the address to the dispatcher for help.
Akron police said that Carter fled the scene as paramedics worked to revive her son.
As the toddler recovered at Akron Children's Hospital, Carter came to the hospital with a family member and turned herself in Thursday night, according to police.
Summit County Children's Services have custody of Carter's three children who are living with relatives while the investigation is underway.
Police are also waiting for the results of a toxicology report to determine what drugs the child took.
