Dad accused of exposing children to meth (Morgan County, Alabama)

I can't help but wonder if this was a custody/visitation situation. If the mother had been living in the home with the father, it's very likely she would have been charged as well. But on the contrary, we're told the children are "now" in the "care of their mother." Does this mean they weren't in her care before? As usual, the news accounts aren't terribly clear. Wonder who the "family member" was who told the authorities about Daddy. The fact that a "family member" had previous suspicions about the father (but apparently not the mother?) also suggests to me that the mother did not live in the home.

Dad is identified as DON EVAN ROBINSON III.

MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — Authorities say two children, one as young as 10, were exposed to methamphetamine. The Morgan County Drug Task Force was notified by a family member who was concerned about alleged drug activity at a home in Falkville.

Don Evan Robinson III admitted to having meth, according to authorities. The children are now in the care of their mother. Authorities advised her to seek medical attention for the children, due to the meth exposure in the home. The Morgan County Department of Human Resources is also investigating.

Robinson is charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance and chemical endangerment of a child.
