State Police in Butler County say they arrested a Harrisville woman last week after she was accused of caring for two children while under the influence of drugs.

Investigators say the parents who hired 25 year-old Lindsay Ritchey as a babysitter claim Ritchey had taken their own prescription medicine.

Responding to the Harrisville incident, police say they also discovered Ritchey is on probation.  Ritchey was charged with theft, endangering the welfare of children and a probation violation, and was lodged in the Butler County Jail.
