A 30-year-old Westchester County woman faces child endangerment and drug-related charges after she was allegedly found unconscious, slumped over a baby stroller that had her 6-month-old twins inside, authorities say.
A concerned bystander stopped Yonkers cops near Mill Street in the middle of the afternoon Friday to report the woman, Jessica Reyes, of New Rochelle. Cops went to check it out and found Reyes slumped over the double baby carriage.
Officers also saw a "burnt cigar" in Reyes' hand they allege turned out to be a mixture of PCP and synthetic marijuana. Cops seized the drugs and tried to wake Reyes up, which she did after several attempts.
Reyes then turned to the officers and said, "Don't take my children, I only took a few pulls," before she was arrested, according to police.
The baby girls were checked out at a local hospital, found to be in good health and transferred to the custody of Child Protective Services.
Information on a possible attorney for Reyes wasn't immediately available.
