A Nacogdoches woman is jailed on multiple felony charges after police serving a search warrant found felony amounts of drugs accessible to children Thursday.

Shatoya Tyshae Doggett's bond was set at a total of $85,000 on three first-degree felony charges for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and four state-jail felony charges of abandoning or endangering a child.

Doggett, 29, was arrested at a home in the 800 block of Wells Street around 5 p.m. Thursday. Inside, law enforcement found "methamphetamine, ecstasy and cocaine," and "evidence of the distribution of narcotics at the residence."

Four kids apparently lived in the home as well, and drugs were discovered in one child's room.

"One of the defendant's children was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and had ingested it at a local elementary school," according to the affidavit filed against Doggett. "The defendant recklessly and with criminal negligence stored the narcotics in a place where the children had access too placing her four children in imminent danger of death, bodily injury of physical or mental impairment."

On Thursday, the Nacogdoches Independent School District notified parents that a student had distributed "a controlled substance" to an undisclosed number of students at Fredonia Elementary school that morning.

Carmen Zarte-Gozalez, the mother of one student hospitalized after the incident, told The Daily Sentinel that four children were given what resembled a sugar-coated piece of candy.

Doggett was still jailed as of 10 a.m. Friday.
