Toddler Busts Woman With Drugs During Traffic Stop

An 11-month-old toddler revealed a baggie full of cocaine from a woman's shirt during a traffic stop in Florida, according to officers who were at the scene.

Originally, the vehicle was stopped for traffic violations, an open trunk with an unsecured bicycle, in Daytona Beach, Fla.

After a K-9 unit arrived at the scene to inspect the vehicle, of which no drugs were found inside, the suspect, Candyce Harden went to retrieve her driver's license from the officer.  It was then when the baby reached inside the woman's shirt and grabbed the bag of cocaine. 

Following the incident, deputies also found three more baggies with cocaine residue and pills without a prescription in Harden's purse.

Harden was charged with possession of cocaine and possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia, two counts of possession of pills without a prescription, smuggling contraband into a prison facility and child abuse. She was released after posting $4,500 bail.

Harden's occupant, Crystal Matthews, was sitting in the back seat of the vehicle while the incident took place. Matthews also has a record for the sale/manufacture/or delivery of cocaine.
