Police say 30-year-old Matthew Mcleod and 29-year-old Valene St. Onge were charged with furnishing drugs. St. Onge was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The two were arrested at the hospital and posted bail.

Police said the 9-month-old baby was removed from the home. Investigators are working to determine how the infant ingested the drug.
