Deputies got a warrant for Teubner's home on Greer Road, where they found drugs in the bedroom.
Deputies also learned Teubner knew his child had ingested the drug but didn't seek medical care. It's unclear who took the toddler to the hospital.
The child was turned over to the Division of Family and Children's Services.
