CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Two Conway parents were arrested Thursday after their 4-year-old son allegedly tested positive for cocaine and methamphetamine.

Timothy Allen King, 40, and Courtney Amber Walker-King, 28, have both been charged with unlawful neglect of a child.

On Feb. 20, a Department of Social Services employee informed police the child tested positive for narcotics, according to a Conway Police Department report. The employee also provided test results which showed both suspects tested positive for methamphetamine, police say.

According to the report, both parents turned themselves in after a warrant was issued for their arrest.

Each suspect received a $10,000 bond and were released from custody about seven hours after their arrest, according to online records from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
