ARCADIA, Fla. (AP) — Officials said a 44-year-old Florida woman bought her infant grandchild and a stash of cocaine and heroin to a recent prison visit. But guards searching visitors at the DeSoto Correctional Institution on Sunday found nearly 100 grams of drugs during the check-in process.
DeSoto County Sheriff’s deputies arrested the woman and a K-9 named Liberty conducted a “free air sniff” of her car and found an additional 687 grams of drugs alongside a baby’s car seat.
The infant was turned over to the Department of Children and Families.
The woman was charged with trafficking in heroin and cocaine, introduction of contraband into a correctional facility and child abuse/neglect.
