CocaineOn January 11, 2013, at approximately 12:15 a.m., the Morongo Basin Sheriff’s Station received information that a 7 year old victim was transported by ambulance to the High Desert Medical Center emergency room. The victim was having seizures, had a severe fever, an elevated heart rate and other symptoms. A urine test was conducted and the victim tested positive for methamphetamine/amphetamine. The victim was in critical condition and was air lifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center-Childrens Hospital for further emergency medical treatment. The victim is being treated and her condition is improving.

Investigators determined that the child mistakenly injested the methamphetamine thinking it was candy.

The San Bernardino County Department of Family Social Services assisted in placing the other three children living with the victim in a safe environment.

Michelle Beamer 30 and Johnnie Koranda 32 both of Joshua Tree, were arrested for Felony Child Endangerment and booked into San Bernardino County Jail.

Some of the folks we need to recognize at the Public Affairs Office that help get the stories out are, "Arden Wiltshire" (awiltshire(at)sbcsd.org), "Cynthia, Beavers" (cbeavers(at)sbcsd.org), and "Jodi Miller" (jmiller(at)sbcsd.org) Locally we might get stories written by Corporal Rick Millard, Captain Don Miller and others.
