Deputy: Woman hid pot in girl's lunchbox during traffic stop
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. - A 33-year-old South Florida woman faces multiple charges after a sheriff's deputy found marijuana in her young niece's lunchbox during a traffic stop.
Broward Sheriff's officials tell local news outlets Tasha Sims was arrested Wednesday in Pompano Beach.
An arrest report says the deputy stopped Sims and smelled marijuana when he approached the car. He asked if she had anything in the vehicle. The deputy says Sims told him she put marijuana in the girl's lunchbox because she was afraid when he pulled her over.
The deputy wrote that Sims admitted she "messed up."
She was charged with child neglect, possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license and issued several citations. The girl was released to her mother.
Records don't indicate whether Sims has a lawyer.
