LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A small child unbuckled in the front seat of a car led to a drug arrest for one mother.

According to Louisville Metro police, Vanessa Finley was pulled over around 5:30 p.m. Sunday along Rockford Lane because an officer spotted a small child in the front seat without a booster seat.

Officers said a Finley gave them a verbal consent to search her car. During the searching nine small baggies containing meth were found.

According to an arrest report, Finley told officers she had been smoking large amounts of meth because she was due to turn herself in this week to start a prison sentence.

Finley is charged with possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and booster seat violations.
