NEW CANEY, TX -- On March 13, 2024, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 20300 block of Melba Street, New Caney, Texas, in reference to a Welfare Check. Upon arrival, Deputies learned an eighteen-month-old child was found unresponsive by the mother. MCHD medics responded and determined that the child had overdosed on an unknown substance.
