Mother arrested after allegedly hiding drugs in child's backpack

CONROE, Texas -- Deputies in Montgomery County say a mother was arrested in a school drop-off line after she hid drugs inside her child's backpack.

Deputies had attempted to stop Royse in a school zone for an unknown traffic violation. She finally stopped in the drop-off line.

Royse was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence, and for having drugs in a drug free zone.
