Miami Mom and Son Arrested After Cocaine, Pot Found in Car With Young Kids: Cops

A Miami woman and her son were arrested after police say they were found with marijuana and cocaine in a car with the woman's two young children in the back seat.

Ilis Dany Quesada-Valdivia, 34, is facing two counts of child neglect without great bodily harm, one count of cocaine possession, and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child.

According to an arrest report, Quesada-Valdivia was arrested after a traffic stop in the area of Southwest 110th Avenue and Southwest 8th Street Sunday.

The report said Quesada-Valdivia let her boyfriend drive her car in a reckless manner, endangering and neglecting her two young children, ages two and four.

The two young kids were unrestrained in the car, while Quesada-Valdivia's third child, 18-year-old Toni Bryan Sifuentes, was sitting near the kids with an open alcohol drink and a half-smoked "marijuana blunt cigarette," the report said.

Also in the car was a clear baggie with a cocaine substance, the report said.

"I knew the cocaine and the marijuana was in the vehicle because I went with my boyfriend to buy it," Quesada-Valdivia told officers, according to the report.

Sifuentes was also arrested on cocaine and marijuana possession charges.

Quesada-Valdivia appeared in court Monday, where she was ordered held on $3,000 bond. A judge also appointed a public defender for her.
