An Oklahoma mother was incarcerated after she was accused of using her baby’s diaper bag to carry methamphetamine and paraphernalia.
In the middle of the afternoon on February 6, the mother of a 7-month-old child was at her residence in Sapulpa, which is about 14 miles away from the downtown Tulsa area.
According to reports, the Creek County Sheriff’s Office obtained a search warrant for the home. The reason for the search has not been disclosed at this time.
The Sheriff’s deputies, acting on the warrant, went to the woman’s address and someone at the home allowed them entry.
It was reported that the deputies found the woman and her baby in one of the rooms, and she allegedly had a glass pipe in her hand when they entered.
The baby’s diaper bag was searched, and in addition to the diapers and formula, the deputies allegedly found almost an ounce of methamphetamine, along with several pieces of paraphernalia.
When they talked to the woman about what they reportedly discovered, it was reported that she admitted to putting the meth in the diaper bag, and added that she had fentanyl pills in her bra.
The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Creek County Justice Center. She is expected to face charges for suspicion of trafficking in fentanyl, unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled drug in the presence of a child under 12 years of age, child endangerment, use of a communication device to facilitate a drug transaction, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Creek County Department of Human Services was notified, and they intervened on behalf of the child.
