NEW SCOTLAND, N.Y. - A toddler surprised officers during a traffic stop when she handed them a bag of drugs and paraphernalia, police said.
State troopers stopped a car last week and noticed the 3-year-old girl was not properly secured in the back seat, police said.
"The little girl reached under the front seat and retrieved a zippered pouch," police said in a release. "She opened it and held it up so the trooper could see the contents."
