Toddler found high on heroin during mother's arrest in Washington, deputy says

A two-year-old boy has been taken into protective custody after police found him apparently high on heroin in the backseat of his mother's car in Everett, Wash., just north of Seattle, KOMO-TV reported.

Deputies arrested the boy's mother Camie Bena and her boyfriend after stopping their car Thursday night, a Snohomish County Sheriff's Office spokesperson told the station Friday.

While the boyfriend was arrested on a warrant and other charges, deputies found a needle loaded with heroin in Bena's purse, along with other drug paraphernalia.

In the backseat of the car was her son, who was taken to a local hospital after deputies became concerned he was extremely lethargic. One deputy said it was apparent the boy was high from the heroin that his mother had been smoking in the car, KOMO reported.

It is the second time the boy has been placed under the protection of Child Protective Services, following an incident in 2010 when his mother crashed a car with him inside while she was high on marijuana or PCP.

Bena is being held at the Snohomish County jail on $11,000 bail, after being taken into custody on suspicion of possession of heroin and reckless endangerment.
