CPS takes custody of child

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Sept. 15, at approximately 9:13 p.m., officers were patrolling in the area of Holly Road and I-75, when they noticed a silver van with no visible license plate and a broken brake light. Upon speaking with the driver, a 53-year-old Davisburg man, officers determined he was driving on an invalid license and had a warrant. His passenger, a 29-year-old Davisburg woman, said she was eight and a half months pregnant and also had her minor child with her, whom she had just picked up for visitation as she had lost custody of him due to previous drug use. The woman was also found to be in possession of two suspected heroin spoons and syringes, and stated she last used Friday. The male stated the baby was his but they had recently had a doctor visit and they weren’t sure it was alive, but they told the doctor they wanted to wait before taking any action. The woman was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, but Genesee County jail officials refused to take her due to her medical condition, so she was released. The driver was cited and released as his warrant was not in the local jurisdiction. — P.S.
