A mother from Springfield Township, Ohio is facing a list of charges after authorities allege that she was trafficking drugs with kids in her vehicle.

Kari Fellinger, 40, was arrested on Saturday. Court documents revealed that Fellinger was taken into custody “with a significant amount of drugs while her children were with her.”

Fellinger’s 2-year-old and 5-year-old children were in the vehicle, along with another 5-year-old who she was caring for, WXIX reported.

The criminal complaint revealed that Valium and crack cocaine were discovered in her bra. She also had pills on her “ready for sale in a school zone,” court documents indicated.

Police officials said the woman also purportedly had crack-cocaine “prepared for shipment” and heroin “packaged to sell.”

She has been charged with three counts of child endangerment, three counts of drug trafficking, and five counts of drug possession.

The woman is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
