SARATOGA, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming man has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges including child endangerment after bringing a baby to a suspected drug deal.

The Rawlins Daily Times reported Wednesday that 34-year-old Andrew Engle faces up to 37 years in prison and $45,000 in fines after being charged with felony possession of meth, delivery of a controlled substance and other charges.

Authorities say his 30-year-old girlfriend Kelly Sachtjen was also charged with child endangerment.

A confidential informant says the couple arrived for the deal at a retail parking lot in June with a child in the back seat.

Authorities say Sachtjen temporarily removed the child from the vehicle while the informant exchanged $900 for a meth-filled Cheetos bag.

A trial date for Engle has not yet been scheduled.

Attorneys were not mentioned.
