A LaGrange man is in the Adams County Jail on child endangerment and meth related charges.

According to Lewis County Sheriff David Parrish, LaGrange Police learned Friday that a two year old child had been taken to Blessing Hospital in Quincy with severe injuries.

An investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies resulted in the search of a residence in LaGrange. Items related to the endangering of a child and controlled substances were found in the residence. As a result, a warrant was issued for 34 year old Marcus Mays.

Mays was taken into custody Friday in Quincy. He is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and possession of methamphetamine. Bond was set at $100,000 cash only.

Mays remains in the Adams County Jail, pending extradition back to Lewis County.

The child remains in critical condition as the investigation continues.
