Children Find, Then Take Drugs Found In Their Home



MANAKTO (TEC News) – Three adults were arrested early Thursday morning in Mankato after three young children ingested prescription medication found in the home.
 
Mankato police and fire were called to the 200 block of Jaycee Court around 7:51 a.m.
 
They were told the children, ages two, five and seven had taken an unknown quantity of the medication. All three children were medically cleared.
 
But as a result, three adults were arrested and charged in the incident.
 
25-year-old Nicole Strong of Mapleton and 29-year-old Nicole Glenn of Mankato both face felony charges of Fifth Degree Drug Possession, for having Meth in the presence of children and child endangerment.
 
30-year-old Corey Collmann faces felony charges of Fifth Degree Drug Possession and Fifth Degree Drug Sale.

Five children between the ages of three months and seven years who were in the home at the time have been placed in protective custody pending further investigation by Blue Earth County and law enforcement staff.

The case remains under investigation.
 
Last November, Nicole Strong was the subject of a police search after friends reported her missing. Within days police found her safe with another female. She told police then she left to “avoid danger.”
 
A week later she was arrested with another man during a drug task force sting in Mankato with methamphetamine and was charged with drug possession. The man picked her up after Strong disclosed she had fled a family intervention.
