POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - A Powell day care provider and her husband have been charged with child endangerment after police say they found methamphetamine in the same home where the woman watched other people’s children.

Powell police say they found drug paraphernalia and a small amount of meth during a Friday afternoon search of Mandy and Nick Ringler’s home.

Circuit Court Judge Bruce Waters on Monday ordered each held on $10,000 cash bail, pending an Oct. 9 preliminary hearing.

The Ringlers each face misdemeanor counts of possessing methamphetamine and four felony counts of child endangerment.

The Powell Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1oElUCV ) their residence is licensed by the state as a family child care home, but that license was suspended by the Wyoming Department of Family Services after Monday’s court hearing.
