PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies found 1.7 grams of crystal methamphetamine in a baby's shoe when they arrested three people during a New Year's Eve traffic stop in Port Charlotte.
According to a sheriff's report, a deputy stopped the vehicle Monday night after observing it veer into the center lane and then sideswipe a curb. One occupant had a plastic baggie with $790 and white powder that tested positive for meth.
The deputy spotted a baggie sticking out of the bra of a woman passenger. In the backseat, he found meth inside a 1-year-old girl's shoe, which was in her mother's purse and within the baby's reach. In all, 42.3 grams of meth was seized.
According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office Manuel Angel Rolon, 41, of Arcadia; Dodie Allyson Albritton, 20, of Arcadia; and Bret Alexander Rule, 29, of Myakka City were arrested.
