A 21-year-old Augusta woman who admitted giving a 14-year-old relative alcohol and marijuana is facing charges, police say.

According to an incident report, Angela Thomason provided her niece with a marijuana cigarette and a large cup of tea mixed with vodka Sunday.

The girl later requested eye drops for her bloodshot eyes and confessed the activities to another adult. On Monday, the teen was taken to an urgent care facility for a drug test, which indicated positive for marijuana.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said Thomason admitted to giving the items to her niece.

Thomason was booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of contributing to the deprivation of a minor. She has posted bond.
