Pasco woman accused of trying to beat drug test with toddler's urine

NEW PORT RICHEY – Sara Lou Kenny needed some clean urine to pass a drug test so, authorities say, she tried to smuggle the urine from her friend's 4-year-old son past a probation officer and pass it off as her own.

It didn't work.

Kenney, 20, of Townhouse Drive in New Port Richey, was arrested Friday at a substance abuse program office on Little Road.

Her friend and roommate, 26-year-old Amber Tobeck, was also arrested at the same office for giving her son's urine to Kenny, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Both women are on felony probation – Kenny for drugs and Tobeck for fraud and theft convictions – according to the Florida Department of Corrections. Kenny's two-year drug court probation sentence began Feb. 1. An arrest report said Kenny had methadone that was not prescribed to her.

Kenny and Tobeck are being held without bail at the Pasco County jail on charges of violating their probations. Kenny is unemployed. Tobeck told authorities she is a waitress at the Cracker Barrel restaurant in New Port Richey.
