Reynolds, age 32, 1220 Watertown Road, Waterford, Ohio, were arrested and taken to the Washington County Jail for processing.
The investigation began in April 2017 when Detectives were made aware of a 5 week old child being taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) possibly due to failure to thrive. Detectives travelled to NCH to speak with the parents, Barnhart and Reynolds. Barnhart advised Detectives that she was nursing the child and did not feel she was producing enough milk to feed the child. Barnhart also admitted to spoking marijuana every day, all day, even though she was nursing the child. The child’s birth weight was 6.2 pounds and upon arriving at NCH weighed 4.14 pounds. It was determined that the child was essentially “starving”.
On 14 Apr 17 Detectives executed a search warrant at the home of Barnhart and Reynolds. During the search straws were located in the bedroom, which contained a white powder residue, later testing positive for cocaine, oxycodone, hydrocodone and 6-Monoacetylmorphone.
Barnhart and Reynolds were again interviewed and questioned about the straws, with both denying ownership of the straws or using the drugs. A witness advised Detectives that they had seen Barnhart smoke marijuana and snort pills while she was nursing the child. Detectives also obtained other evidence of Reynolds requesting to trade marijuana so he could do a “birthday line”.
The child was removed on 8 May 17 from the custody of the parents.
Both Barnhart and Reynolds remain incarcerated in the Washington County Jail pending a court appearance.
