A Columbus mother was arrested on Sunday after someone reported seeing her preparing to use drugs in a bowling alley bathroom.

According to Clinton Township police, Johanna Williams had her four-year-old son with her at the time.

Williams, 26, of Columbus was charged with child endangering, possession of drugs, and possession of drug instruments and drug paraphernalia.

Police said a patron at HP Lanes on Innis Road called them and reported seeing a bunch of needles and a spoon laid out on the floor of the bathroom near the child.

Officers who responded to the call reported that they recovered hypodermic syringes sticking out of Williams' bag and two syringes that they suspected contained heroin.

The boy was not harmed. He was turned over to his grandmother, who has full legal custody of the child. She said she had allowed the mom to take the child on Sunday because it was Mother's Day.

Police notified Franklin County Children Services about the arrest. Williams remained jailed Sunday night.

A judge set a $200,000 bond for Williams on Monday.
