(WIDK by Patrick Heywood) – A toddler was found high on drugs in the backseat of his mother’s car.
A two-year old boy was found high on heroin in the backseat of his mother’s car in Everett, Washington on Thursday.
It was apparent the boy was high from the heroin his mother had been smoking in the car, according to one deputy.
The boy’s mother, Camie Bena, and her boyfriend were arrested after their car was stopped on Thursday night.
Deputies found a heroin-loaded needle in Bena’s purse, along with other drug paraphernalia.
The boy was in the backseat of the car and was taken to a local hospital by medics because he appeared very lethargic.
The boy has been turned over to Child Protective services, making it the second time the boy has been placed with the agency after a previous incident when he was 6 months old, reports KOMO News.
