Two women have been arrested after they carried $10 million worth of heroin in a vehicle while an infant was in the backseat, police said.

Arlene Viridiana Moya, 23, and Trisha Lynne Ibarra, 23, were in a white Ford SUV driving down Interstate 20 in Rankin County, Mississippi when they were stopped for a routine traffic violation, police said in a news release Tuesday.

Moya is from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico and Ibarra is from Laredo, Texas.

“The gas tank [of the car] was removed by members of the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department, and located inside the gas tank was 51 pounds of heroin,” police said.

The heroin was worth $10 million in street value.

Ibarra’s 3-month-old baby was in the vehicle at the time. The child was placed with Child Protective Services custody, police said.

“Regular mom or dad, who would even consider transporting drugs with a child with them in the car? But, I’m telling you, these drug cartels are ruthless; they go to whatever means necessary,” Sheriff Bryan Bailey said, according to WAPT. “They use whatever they can to get around us and around getting caught.”

Moya and Ibarra were arrested and charged with aggravated trafficking of heroin, police said.

Deputies Actively Searching For This Man Accused Of Putting 3-Year-Old Girl In Oven

A man in Florida is being sought in a child abuse case after he put a 3-year-old girl in an oven, deputies say.

Terry L. May, 45, from DeLand, is wanted on child abuse charges.

The child abuse charge against him carries a $50,000 bond.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s office, a deputy responded to the victim’s home last Thursday to meet with her and an investigator with the state Department of Children and Families.

The 3-year-old girl reported that May frequently hit her with a belt. Deputies say that she had several noticeable injuries, including an extensive abrasion on her ear, several contusions and swelling on the top of her head and forehead, a 6-inch scar on her back, abrasions and lacerations on her feet, hands and leg.

The ear abrasion reportedly appeared to be consistent with a burn injury.

After a medical examination was conducted, the victim told the DCF investigator that May had put her in the oven.

Deputies are actively searching for May, but have not been able to locate him at this time.

No additional information has been provided by law enforcement.

Sheriff Mike Chitwood designated May as the “SCUMBAG of the Week” and is urging anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact the Sheriff’s Office.
