A man and woman were charged by police during a traffic stop over the weekend after they were found with crack cocaine, a three-year-old child without a safety seat or seat belt securing him.
Officers stopped the two around 8:43 a.m. Sunday after seeing them speeding on Reynosa Street before turning north onto College Avenue, an Odessa Police Department news release stated.
During a traffic stop, officers identified the driver, 43-year-old David Solis, and the passenger, 32-year-old Kristy Flores, with a 3-year-old child standing up in the back middle seat area of the vehicle unsecured by a seatbelt or safety seat of any kind, the release detailed.
Officers also found crack cocaine on top of the front center console, the release stated, and a crack pipe between the center console and front passenger seat.
Solis and Flores were charged with endangering a child and possession of cocaine, state jail felonies, and Solis was further charged with no proof of insurance with prior convictions and driving while license invalid, class B misdemeanors.
Jail records show Solis was taken to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center Monday and released the same day on four bonds totaling $23,500, and Flores was taken to the ECLEC Sunday and released Monday on two bonds totaling $30,000.
