BOWIE COUNTY, TX (KSLA) - A Bowie County mom was arrested for drug possession during a traffic stop with her son in the car early Saturday morning.

The deputy found 8 bags of methamphetamine and more than $9,000 in cash.

The street value of the drugs is about $30,000, according to sheriff's deputies.

Littles was arrested for possession of the drugs and booked into jail at the Bi-State Justice Building.
