HEMPSTEAD, Texas (AP) — Texas authorities have arrested a Waller County woman who they say used her 7-year-old daughter to collect and inspect cash during a cocaine deal. The Waller County district attorney tells KPRC-TV the woman was arrested this month after an undercover officer recorded a drug deal. He says the woman faces charges of endangering a child and selling drugs.

He says the woman told the officer to give the money to the daughter, who was trained to catch counterfeit bills. The official says the woman had 8 grams of cocaine when she was arrested outside an area bar.

The woman is being held on $100,000 bond at the Waller County Jail. Other family members are caring for the daughter. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
