Arizona police found a baby in a locked room with dangerous illicit drugs after a traffic stop

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office
said that a Prescott police officer performed a traffic stop of 31-year-old Amber Dawn Lee on Wednesday.

The officer said that Lee was excessively nervous, and so a K9 police dog was used to investigate around the woman’s vehicle. That’s when the officer discovered 200 fentanyl pills in her backpack and more pills in her shoe.

Officers then obtained a warrant to search the woman’s residence.

The opioid crisis has been growing and taxing law enforcement resources across the country.

In one
startling incident from February, five adults were found dead from overdosing on fentanyl in an apartment in Denver, Colorado. The only survivor was a 4-month-old baby whose parents perished in the harrowing case.

“Drug distributors and drug cartels are lacing everything with fentanyl right now. No drug is safe right now,” said district attorney Brian Mason. “This scene last night looked like a mass homicide scene.”
