LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Polk County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 28-year-old Livingston woman for endangering a child after she allegedly conducted a drug transaction with her 3-month-old baby boy in the car and almost got into an accident leaving a McDonalds parking lot.

Valarie Marie Strasheim-Moon is still being held in the Polk County Jail on a felony child endangerment charge and a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. Her bail has been set at $5,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, a Polk County Sheriff's narcotics investigator witnessed Strasheim-Moon driving a gray Toyota. She allegedly left a McDonalds parking lot at a high rate of speed and crossed four lanes of traffic and two turn lanes. In the process, her car was almost struck by a black pickup.

The PCSO investigator made a traffic stop on Strasheim-Moon. When he searched her vehicle, he allegedly found two 11-gram bags of kush, a high-grade type of marijuana, and a located syringe of a substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Later, Strasheim-Moon allegedly admitted to making a narcotic transaction with her 3-month-old baby boy in the car with her.
