Clayton Chavez and the child were found in the Wildomar garage after authorities responded to a report of possible illegal drug abuse at the location in the 3200 block of Central Street, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
The 1-year-old was turned over to the county Child Protective Service agency, authorities said.
Chavez is also suspected of child endangerment, being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics-related paraphernalia.
