Police have charged a Pennsylvania mother who went cruising around with a friend in a red Corvette after stuffing her two young children in the truck of the car.

According to ABC News10, officers arrested 29-year-old, Jessica Marie Reger, during a traffic stop on July 10th, after someone called 911 about a person placing two kids in the trunk of a car.

A Hanover Borough Police officer stopped the two-seater red Corvette driven by 28-year-old Ilena Gale Blackburn. The children’s mother, 29-year-old Jessica Reger, was in the passenger seat.

When the officer ordered Blackburn to open the trunk, he discovered the two children ages 3 and 5-years-old inside and unharmed. Both women were subsequently placed under arrest.

Blackburn faces one count of recklessly endangering another person.

Police charged Reger with two counts of endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person. A judge ordered her remanded on $2,500 bail.

Reger has had prior run-ins with law enforcement, with arrests for driving without a license, endangering the welfare of a child, and shoplifting.
