Police say a mother was found smoking marijuana in a motel room she shared with her baby.
Tatum Harrison, 30, of Galt, was arrested for child cruelty after police said she exposed her daughter to narcotics.
Galt officers were on scene at the Royal Delta Inn, 1040 N. Lincoln Way, on Tuesday investigating another crime when they reportedly smelled an odor coming from a room, Police Lt. Brian Vizzusi said.
When police knocked on the door, they reportedly found other adults in the room smoking in front of the child.
The 1-year-old girl was taken into protective custody and turned over to Sacramento County Child Protective Services, Vizzusi said.
