DESOTO PARISH, La. (KTBS) - A DeSoto Parish mother was arrested during a traffic stop after drugs were found in her baby's diaper.

It happened Monday evening during a traffic stop. The Sheriff's Office was checking on a tip they received about drug activity going on at a home.

Officers pulled over 53 year-old Linda Walker near the home after seeing 26 year-old Cecelia Carter get into the vehicle with her infant who was not in a child safety seat. Instead, Carter allegedly placed the child in her lap.

During the traffic stop, a relative near the scene offered to change the infant's diaper. That's when they found a baggie of crystal meth stuck to the child bottom. The child was transported to the hospital by ambulance for evaluation. The child was later released to family members.

Carter was arrested and booked into the DeSoto Parish Detention Center where she is being charged with Possession of Schedule II Drugs, Illegal use of CDS in the presence of a person under 17 years-old, possession of drug paraphernalia and no seat belt.

The driver, Linda Walker, was also arrested and charged with driving under suspension.
