GREENWOOD, SC – A woman has been arrested for allegedly exposing her four children – all under the age of five – to methamphetamines. The arrest was made after the Department of Social Services received a complaint.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, DSS received a complaint on September 26th that Kayla Lynn Beggs, 29, of 401 S Cambridge Street, #B8, in Ninety Six, was exposing her children to methamphetamines. Beggs’ has four children, ages five, four, two and one.

Beggs was tested for drugs by hair sample on October 1st, according to the report. The result of that test was positive, showing methamphetamines at a level of 769 pg/mg.

The four children were tested by hair sample on September 26th. All four children tested positive for methamphetamines, according to the report. The report states that the five year old child had a level of 1,704 pg/mg, the four year old child had a level of 10,136 pg/mg, the two year old child had a level of 17,636 pg/mg and the one year old child had a level of 7,308 pg/mg.

The children are currently in the care of their grandmother, according to the report.

Beggs has been charged with four counts of unlawful neglect of a child. Her bond was set at $20,000 cash or surety, which she posted on Thursday morning. Beggs pled guilty to DUI and had a charge for child endangerment stemming from the same incident dropped in August of this year.

to the woman so ready to defend, i agree we have choices to make and as parents it is our responsibility to make choices for our adolescent children. it was her choice to do meth and it was her choice to expose her children to meth, and her choice to allow her children to go wherever it is they went to be exposed to meth. i know all this all to well i have been down that road. it was my choice. if you see nothing wrong with this picture that just goes to show you are one of her meth buddies!!!

Everyone makes mistakes, I know I have and is paying dearly for them now. Kayla is a wonderful mother, she would not intentionally put her kids at risk. For everyone who is judging her the children had more in their system then she which means to me someone other than her exposed them to it. She is a great person. Someone needs to step up ,she was exposed unaware of it. I love you Kayla!

Look people> The choices that you make, determine the price that you pay. A drug is a drug is a drug no matter what it is! It is illegal no matter how you look at it. I don't care what the home situation is, that fact of the matter is that her choice to be in contact with that particular drug will cause major problems that will last a lifetime to those children. It all comes down to the choice! Those children don't have a choice , SHE DOES!
