The parents of an 18-month-old Atascadero boy were in custody Thursday after he ingested cocaine in their home, police said.

Priscilla Tabarez, 20, the boy's mother, called police Wednesday night to report her son had eaten some cocaine, according to an Atascadero police report.

The boy was taken to a hospital and was placed in protective custody with San Luis Obispo County's child welfare department.

It was unclear how the child ingested the drug.

Police arrested Tabarez and her 18-year-old brother, Isaac, who was at the house, as well as the child’s father, Daniel Sanchez, 26, on charges of felony child endangerment.

They were booked into the San Luis Obispo County jail.
