MONROE, La. – Two people are facing charges after they allegedly passed out in a vehicle with an infant.
According to arrest reports filed for the case, Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office deputies found the driver, Brianna Ramsey, 24, and passenger Bradley Bellmore, 22, asleep in a vehicle Sunday morning.
An 8-month-old infant was in a car seat in the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle was not running and all three occupants were covered in sweat, the arrest reports said.
Deputies saw a small plastic bag of what they suspected were drugs through the car window. A search yielded bags of what was believed to be meth and Clonazepam, a prescription medication, along with a set of digital scales and a glass pipe with meth residue, the reports said.
