MURRIETA, Calif. (KABC) — Police in Murrieta arrested a woman after discovering $100,000 worth of drugs hidden in her baby's car seat.

U.S. Border Patrol agents pulled over the car earlier this month. While searching the vehicle, they say, they found more than 38 pounds of meth, cocaine and heroin tucked underneath the child.

The woman -- a U.S. citizen -- was booked into the Riverside County Jail.
