Police: Two Driving with Cocaine & Alcohol with Child in Car Arrested
Two people are in custody after police find them driving with cocaine and brandy in the car with a child.
Police pulled over Wayne Harris and Nika Watkins on January 23rd for not having a license plate light. Police say Harris and Watkins had a 2-year-old girl in the car with them.
When officers tried to pull the vehicle over, the driver, Harris, drove very slowly and even stopped at a red light at NW 10th and Virginia Ave. before pulling into a gas station.
Harris told officers he did not have a drivers license. After police searched his name, his license turned up suspended. He was initially arrested for driving under suspension.
As police were searching the vehicle, they found an open baggie containing white powder thought to be cocaine next to the front passenger seat, which was where Nika Watkins had been sitting. Police found several other baggies throughout the car, though they did not contain any narcotics.
Police say they also found a small, open, bottle of brandy between the passenger seat and passenger side door.
The child's mother was called to pick up the girl. Harris and Watkins were both arrested.
Harris was charged with transporting an open container, illegal or defective light, and driving under suspension.
Because the young girl was in the seat behind Watkins, she was charged with possession of a controlled drug in the presence of a child.

Okla. AG seeks execution date for convicted killer
May 21, 2013 01:40 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Attorney General Scott Pruitt is asking for an execution date for a man convicted in the 1979 slaying of a woman in Tulsa.
Pruitt on Monday said in an appeals court filing that Anthony Rozelle Banks had exhausted his appeals. The U.S. Supreme Court earlier in the day turned away a request by Banks for a hearing.
The 60-year-old Banks wasn't charged until 1997 when he and a co-defendant were linked by DNA evidence to the killing of 24-year-old Sun "Kim" Travis.
Travis was kidnapped from a parking lot in Tulsa, raped and shot in the head.
Pruitt asked the Court of Criminal Appeals to set an execution date within 60 days or at the earliest date it deems fit.
