SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Police in South Bend arrested a 20-year-old woman for hiding a loaded firearm underneath an infant while she drove around with drugs in her car. According to court documents, Aaniyah Nowles hid the pistol underneath her young daughter in her carseat, then covered the baby with a blanket to further conceal the firearm. She did not have a license to carry the gun.
“Due to the position of the gun at any point (the infant) could have discharged the gun causing serious bodily injury or even death.” Court documents state.
Nowles was picked up this week on a warrant stemming from the incident that occured in April. According to officers, Nowles was driving erratically and had a false license plate when they pulled her over.
Court documents state Nowles admitted to having marijuana in the car. Officers found multiple plastic baggies with what appeared to be pot inside.
Nowles is charged with Neglect of a Dependent — placing dependent in situation that endangers the dependent, Criminal Recklessness, Possession of Marijuana and Carrying a Handgun Without a License.
Nowles is also facing a felony Theft and a misdemeanor Resisting Law Enforcement charge in Lake County.
