The Ponca City Police Department reports 25-year-old Magean M. Orndoff and 25-year-old Christopher P. Rosetti remain jailed on Child Endangerment and drug offenses.

A frantic 911 call was received by the Communications Center at approximately 2:19 a.m. Tuesday, reporting an unresponsive child. The ambulance crew and police arrived at the home in the 300 block of South Osage and began treating a 2-year-old boy.

It was reported that he had consumed anti-anxiety prescription medication. EMTs also swept marijuana from the mouth of the unresponsive child.

The ambulance crew rushed to Alliance Medical Code Blue and then the boy was flown to Wesley Hospital in Wichita.

Meanwhile, police secured the home and obtained a search warrant.

Seized from the home was a prescription Rosetti had obtained for medicinal marijuana from Colorado, along with digital scales, drug paraphernalia and the prescription medication that the child had reportedly ingested.

The State of Oklahoma took emergency custody of the 2-year-old boy, along with two siblings which were not in the home at the time of the incident. The siblings are in the care of a relative. The 2-year-old is recovering and is expected to be released later today.

Orndoff was arrested at the hospital. Rosetti left the residence before emergency responders arrived. He was arrested at a relative’s house in Tonkawa mid-morning Tuesday.
