In what can be called the saddest story of 2014 already, Vermont State Police pulled over a 33-year-old woman who happened to be traveling north on 91 with her five year-old daughter Saturday for a marked lane violation and defective equipment.

Apparently, troopers believed the woman may have been carrying drugs, so they pulled out the K-9 and decided to do an exterior scan of the vehicle. And wouldn't you know, the dog alerted the trooper to a possibility of narcotics inside the vehicle.

With troopers being given consent to search, cops found 690 bags of heroin under the cushion of the woman's daughter's car seat. Pretty awesome, ehh?

Eugenia Emerson was arrested and taken to Rockingham State Police barracks. Troopers gave her a citation for trafficking heroin with an order to appear in Windham County Superior Criminal Court, March 18. After failing to post $5,000 in bail, Emerson was transported to Southern State Correctional Facility.

Oh, she was also given a written warning for defective equipment and marked lane violation. Something tells me that is the least of her worries.

On a side note, I am nominating Eugenia Emerson for 2014's Mother of the Year Award. I know it's early, but Eugenia really knocked it out of the park with this one. Pretty sad..
