HOUSTON (AP) — Texas authorities have jailed a Houston Police Department officer who they say transported a kilogram of cocaine while her 6-year-old son was in the car. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office charged 26-year-old Jasmine Bonner with manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance on Wednesday. They say her boyfriend, Derryck Collins, is jailed on a similar charge.

Federal agents and deputies with the sheriff’s office say the couple met in a parking lot near The Woodlands on Tuesday. They say Bonner gave Collins the drugs while her son was in the car. Authorities arrested them after they left the lot.

Bonner has worked for the department’s juvenile division since 2011. She is being held on $1 million bond. Collins is being held without bond. Online jail records didn’t indicate attorneys.
