A 2-year-old boy from Enid who ended up in the E.R. after his mother claimed he swallowed a baggie of drugs is now in DHS custody. 

Police say the child began vomiting while in the care of his mother's boyfriend. The boyfriend told police a baggie of drugs went missing while the boy was with his mother. The mother then called 911.

After Alexandra Winkler made that call she refused to say anything else to police. Investigators say Winkler lied about where her son may have consumed the baggie of drugs.

"I think it is really sad and I think she is young and dumb," said neighbor Sharron Pierce, who was unaware that she lived close to an alleged meth house.

Pierce says she has always been suspicious of Winkler and her boyfriend Wyatt Gungoll, "I just seen cars coming and going."  

Pierce watched as police pulled seven, one-pot meth labs from the home on Tuesday.

"It could have blown up. I mean it's not that far," said Pierce.

Also, inside the house police found a syringe, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia within a child's reach.  Police say the home is not only hazardous for the child, but everyone who steps inside.

"They felt it was so dangerous they got special suits and breathing apparatus so they could go in," said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Dustin Albright.

Police arrested Winkler for child abuse, possession and manufacturing of drugs in the presence of a child. The boyfriend, Gungoll, faces charges for possession and manufacturing drugs.

And it's not Gungoll's first time in trouble. Police also arrested him in 2008, 2009, and 2010 on drug complaints.

The two year old was released from the hospital this afternoon and is currently in DHS custody.  The mother and her boyfriend both appeared in court on Wednesday. Gungoll's bond is set at $130,000.  The mother's bond set at $150,000.
