A NSW man is behind bars after allegedly contaminating his four-month-old baby daughter’s dummy with ice.
The baby was admitted to Albury Base Hospital in late October with an unknown illness and pathology tests found amphetamine and methylamphetamine in her system, reports 7 news.
NSW Health alerted police and a 24-year-old man from North Albury was arrested on Wednesday after trying to flee on foot. He was charged with using poison to endanger life or inflict grievous harm.
Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad believe the man recklessly administered ice to the child by contaminating her dummy.
He was refused bail and is due to face Albury Local Court on Thursday.
