Infants in back seat as moms overdose and pass out, cops say

Infants in back seat as moms overdose and pass out, cops say”

Two South Florida women are facing child neglect charges after police found them overdosed on heroin in their auto, with two babies in the backseat, according to a probable cause affidavit. One of the women overdosed and became unconscious and the second started convulsing.

Boynton Beach Police said officers found June Ann Schweinhart and Kristen O'connor on Woolbright Road in Boynton Beach Thursday.

They were found properly strapped into their vehicle seats by police.

The pair met at a drug rehabilitation program, police said, and struck up a friendship because of their similar due dates. O'Connor asked the friend, June Schweinhart, 28, of Lake Worth, to sit behind the wheel because she thought she "could drive better under the influence of heroin". O'Connor had reportedly asked Schweinhart to sit in the driver's seat as she believed she could handle the auto better under the influence of heroin.

For whatever reason, they decided on Thursday to buy heroin and then snorted it while inside the auto with their children.

A passerby saw what was going on and took the phone and spoke with the dispatcher. The infants have since been turned over to family members, police told the Sun-Sentinel.

"This is an incredibly tragic situation and ultimately, the ones most affected by this are those innocent, handsome babies", Boynton Beach police said in a Facebook post announcing the arrests.

"We hope this serves as a wake-up call for these moms, and that they seek further treatment for their addiction", police wrote.

A judge ruled Friday that O'Connor can be with her child only when the baby's grandmother is present.

After Boynton Beach police arrived on the scene, both women were arrested on child neglect charges and taken to the Palm Beach County Jail, while their children were placed with the Florida Department of Children.
