Wanted Abilene man arrested after young child tests positive for cocaine, other drugs

Kevin Harris

ABILENE, Texas - Police have arrested a 30-year-old Abilene man for endangering a child after his 2-year-old child tested positive for cocaine, heroin, morphine and marijuana.

Kevin Bernard Harris, who was booked into Taylor County Jail on Thursday, and his wife, Kiana Crain, were featured Aug. 30 as being sought as part of the Abilene Police Department's "Wanted Wednesday" effort.




Harris remained jailed Friday on $10,000 bond. His wife has not been arrested.

According to court documents, CPS was notified that Harris and Crain had been smoking "crack all day every day with a child in the house."

A hair follicle test was performed by the Texas Alcohol and Drug Test Services in June and determined the young girl under the couple's care had tested positive for multiple drugs.

In an interview, Harris told the Abilene Police Department he went to a party prior to the drug test. When asked why his child would have tested positive for drugs, Harris said, "he probably had residue on his hands from when he ingested."

Crain told police she and her husband had gone to a party in Abilene, where she, too, ingested cocaine.
