WILLISTON -- A 31-year-old Williston woman is wanted for allegedly allowing an 8-year-old girl to be exposed to drugs in her home -- as methamphetamine was found in her system, police said.

An arrest warrant for Virginia Davis was filed on Tuesday for child endangerment, a Class C felony. It’s not clear from court records whether she is the girl’s mother. According to an affidavit, the child was removed from Davis’s custody in mid-January after authorities ran tests and found the meth in her system.

The girl’s home life drew the attention of police after staff members at a Williston elementary school confiscated gambling items and a grinder with marijuana residue from her on Jan. 13.

The next day, officers spoke to Davis, who said she and the child had been living in a house on 14th Avenue West with “numerous individuals,” and that drug users often visited the home. One resident, described in court documents as “a heavy methamphetamine user,” often cared for the girl, police allege.
