Stacie N. Fitzpatrick is being held in the Ada County Jail on felony charges of possession of controlled substance with intent to deliver and injury to child after Boise police say she was selling methamphetamine which was in the reach of a child under the age of 5 in her west Boise apartment.
Police were sent to an apartment in the 500 block of South Dalson Lane, located in the Franklin/Maple Grove roads neighborhood, around 9 p.m. Saturday after getting a 911 call about a fight.
It was when police got to the apartment and went inside to do a safety check that officers saw what turned out to be about 28 grams of packaged methamphetamine in plain view, according to reports.
Police say they developed undisclosed evidence that Fitzpatrick was selling drugs, which is why she is charged with delivery, officials said Monday.
Police declared the child to be in imminent danger and placed that child in the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
Police reports do not define the relationship between the 26-year-old Fitzpatrick and the child. No charges were filed in connection with the fight call, according to reports.
Fitzpatrick will make her initial court appearance later Monday.
The crimes of possession of meth with intent to deliver is punishable by up to life in prison. The crime of felony injury to child is punishable by up 10 years in prison.
