NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Nashville mother was arrested in Donelson Monday after police reportedly found drugs in her car with her two young children.

According to an affidavit, officers were called to Glen Valley Apartments on Patricia Drive where the manager said she had video of Lakelynn Bennett and her kids sleeping in a car in the parking lot for two nights.

When officers spoke to Bennett, 23, she claimed to be living with her cousin at the complex, but later said her friend who sold drugs had been in the car earlier and left some behind, police said.

When they searched the car, police found about three grams of cocaine in Bennett’s purse, the report stated.

The two children inside were two and four years old.

Bennett was charged with two counts of child endangerment and drug possession. Court records show she was previously arrested on September 17 and charged with theft.

Her bond was set at $32,500.
