YORK, Pa. (AP) - Police in York County arrested a 27-year-old woman after they say she gave her 4-year-old daughter opiates to “help her sleep” late last week.

The York Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/2h4JBHs ) April Rose was charged on Saturday with drug possession, endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person.

Northern York County Regional Police launched an investigation into the Conewago Township woman after they were contacted by the county Office of Children, Youth and Families regarding a suspicious incident involving her daughter.

Authorities say the girl’s grandmother took her to York Hospital after learning that Rose gave her a white powder that she said tasted bad and made her stomach hurt.

Court documents state the girl tested positive for opiates.

It’s not known if Rose has a lawyer.
