TAYLOR COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Three people have been arrested following the discovery of Fentanyl in a diaper bag and are also accused of using it around children, even blowing the smoke directly into the face of a 19-day-old infant.
On January 25, the Taylor County Narcotics Division conducted a traffic stop involving four people and a 19-day-old infant. Officers found the presence of Fentanyl in the vehicle and the baby’s diaper bag.
Child Protective Services took custody of all children involved, and all occupants of the vehicle were questioned by the Criminal Investigations Division.
Upon investigation, it was discovered that suspects Robert Mason, Jennifer Trevino, and Aracely Rocha were allegedly smoking Fentanyl in the hotel room with children present. Detectives say Fentanyl smoke had also been intentionally blown into the 19-day-old baby’s face to “pacify her cries over the past several days.”
Mason, Trevino, and Rocha were each charged with four counts of Second-Degree Felony Child Endangerment and are held on bonds totaling more than $100,000 each.
