Mom of kidnapped state girl faces drug charges
KINGWOOD, W.Va. -- The mother of a 2-year-old West Virginia girl who was kidnapped in February is facing drug charges.
West Virginia State Police arrested 21-year-old Stephanie Ann Parks earlier this month and charged her with delivery of a controlled substance.
Cpl. I.M. Harmon tells The Dominion Post that he and Trooper A. R. Leach saw drug paraphernalia in Parks' Reedsville home when they visited her on March 12. The troopers went to Parks' home to deliver a subpoena for the Pennsylvania State Police related to a hearing for 23-year-old Timothy Adam White of Morgantown.
White is charged with stealing a car with Parks' daughter inside from a gas station in Reedsville on Feb. 8. The girl was found unharmed about four hours later at a home in Richeyville, Pa.
