A 24-year-old Alabaster woman is being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $21,000 after officers said she allegedly smoked marijuana with a child in her car.



Pelham police pulled over Audrey Hope Lemmond at about 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1 and discovered the child in the car, said Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force Lt. Kevin Turner.

After discovering the situation, police arrested Lemmond and charged her with felony counts of chemical endangerment of a child where a controlled substance is produced and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

She also was charged with misdemeanor counts of second-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and illegal possession of prescription drugs and traffic violations of driving with a revoked license and no child restraint in the vehicle.

If convicted of the two felonies, Lemmond could face up to 10 years in prison per charge, according to Alabama law.

As of Dec. 4, no attorney was listed for Lemmond in court documents. She is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13 at 8:30 a.m.
