A Sarasota man is accused of bringing a 6-year-old boy to a drug deal.
Deputies recently pulled over a pickup truck that allegedly ran a stop sign after leaving a home located in an area that had seen it's share of recent narcotics-related violent crimes.
Inside the vehicle sat the driver, Fallon Miller, 32, and her passenger, Gregory Wagner, 48, of Sarasota -- along with a six-year-old boy sandwiched between them, according to a news release from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
Miller confessed to having a crack pipe in the truck hidden beneath the child and driving with a suspended driver's license, the release stated.
While interviewing Miller, the deputy noticed a small white chunk of suspected crack inside her mouth so the deputy grabbed her jaw and ordered her to spit it out before she could swallow the evidence, the affidavit stated.
But after a short struggle, the deputy managed to retrieve the crack.
Wagner is charged with Child Abuse and being Principle to Possession of Cocaine. Miller is charged with Possession of Cocaine, Tampering with Evidence, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Driving While License is Suspended.
This is Wagner’s 17th arrest in Sarasota County and Miller’s 22nd local arrest, according to the Sheriff's Office.
And, sadly, he's not the only one that takes a kid to a drug deal.
