      Myrtle Beach police arrest mother after newborn tested positive for cocaine

      A Myrtle Beach mother is being held without bond in the Myrtle Beach Jail while she is awaiting trial.

      Harley Hendrix, 25, is facing charges of Unlawful Neglect of a Child after being arrested Tuesday.

      A Department of Social Services agent filed a report with police earlier this month, when a newborn baby tested positive for cocaine in his system.

      The baby was placed in the custody of Hendrix's cousin, according to the police report.
