David and Heather Granados of North Platte were charged Monday with child abuse after their young child tested positive for methamphetamine.

Hair follicle tests from the 18-month-old child tested positive for amphetamine, methamphetamine and THC, the active chemical in marijuana, police information officer Rodney Brown said.

Prosecuting Attorney Jennifer Wellan asked for a bond of $50,000 for each of them, but Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull set it at $25,000.

During discussion of the bond amount, Wellan told Turnbull that David Granados is not suspected of using meth, only marijuana.

The Granados’ 18-month-old child is in the care of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Wellan said. Each of the Granados face a maximum penalty of five years jail and $10,000 fine.

Both asked for a public defender.
