The arrest happened Sunday morning in Daytona Beach, Florida, when officers pulled over a car for having dark tinted windows and an open trunk with an unsecured bicycle, the Daytona News-Journal reports.

Volusia County Deputies noticed the driver, Daniel Dougherty, appeared nervous. His hands were shaking and his voice was cracking, according to the arrest report.

Officers asked for the licenses of Dougherty, front seat passenger Candyce Harden, and Crystal Matthews, who was in the back seat with the 11-month-old boy. Police won't say if either Harden or Matthews is his mother.

Officers discovered Matthews was on “Florida Inmate Release status” for the sale/manufacture/or delivery of cocaine, according to the police report.

When a K-9 unit arrived to check the car, all the passengers were asked to step outside of the vehicle. Harden held the child during the vehicle search.

No drugs were found and the deputy started returning the licenses back to Dougherty, Matthews and Harden.

When he gave back the license to Harden, cops said the child reached inside her shirt and pulled out a baggie containing cocaine, the Associated Press reports.

Deputies then conducted a second search of the car and allegedly found three more baggies and pills without a prescription, ClickOrlando reports.

Harden was charged with child abuse, possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of pills without prescription, possession of paraphernalia and smuggling contraband into a prison facility, jail records show, according to the News-Journal.

She was released after posting $4,500 bail.

Matthews and Dougherty were released at the scene. Volusia County deputies are not releasing the whereabouts of the child citing privacy laws.
