Prescott Boy In Critical, But Stable Condition In A Phoenix Hospital After A Suspected Meth Overdose

A two-year-old Prescott boy is in critical, but stable condition after a suspected overdose on meth Tuesday. Police were called to Yavapai Regional Medical Center Tuesday morning at around 6:48 upon a report of a two-year-old that was being flown to a Phoenix area hospital due to a drug overdose. He was brought to the hospital by family members after the boy was having seizure-like symptoms. The initial toxicology results showed that the boy had meth in his system. Officers contacted the father, 30-year-old Johnny Holguin of Prescott. Authorities say Holguin showed signs of recent drug use and police found a useable quantity of cocaine in his possession. The boy and his father lived in a home, with other family members, in the 300 block of Carelton Drive in Prescott. Both Holguin and the boy’s 65-year-old aunt Sylvia Uranga, also of Prescott, admitted to using meth within the past couple of days. Both were taken into custody and booked into the Yavapai County Jail on charges of child abuse and possession of dangerous drugs.
