Tucson parents were arrested Sunday after Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies found a million dollars worth of fentanyl pills in a child’s car seat. A deputy pulled a vehicle over along Interstate-17 near Cordes Lakes for making an unsafe lane change. During the stop a K9 was brought out to do a free air sniff. The dog alerted deputies to drugs inside the car, so deputies conducted a search. Inside the deputy located a child car seat and found a hidden compartment with more than 52-thousand fentanyl pills inside. Arrested were the driver, 27-year-old Roberto Guerrero and the passenger 24-year-old Ana Razo-Villea, who ride with their three kids all under the age of six. “I wish I could say I was shocked that parents of three young and innocent children would use a car seat to conceal such dangerous drugs,” said Sheriff David Rhodes. “But this is the sad reality of our world today. People try to get creative when hiding their criminal activity, but they need to know that they can’t hide anything from us.” Both were charged with transportation of dangerous drugs and child endangerment. The kids are now in DCS custody.
