A Limestone County mother is out on bond after being arrested for chemically endangering a child on Monday.

Court documents show Adrienne Lockard, 26, of Athens, was arrested after the Limestone County Department of Human Resources filed a report with the sheriff's officer after receiving complaints that she exposed her two-year-old son to methamphetamine.

Tonight, some people in the community are expressing their concerns. 

"[It's] unbelieveable," said Barry Moore, who lives in Limestone County. " Drugs are destroying this community and every community in America." 

Moore says he'd like to see something done about the issue. 

"Until we get stiffer laws, and they keep these people in jail instead of letting them bond right on back out on the street, we're gonna continue to have problems." 

A DHR officer says her son was able to obtain a bag of methamphetamine and consume it. After drug testing both Lockard and her son, it was determined both tested positive for methamphetamine. The officer says she also received a photo showing Lockard's son after he had consumed the substance. He was reported to be wrapped in a towel in the fetal position with heavily-dilated pupils.

Lockard has since been released from the Limestone County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
