SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Holyoke man is facing charges for allegedly selling heroin out of his car with his 6-year-old son unrestrained in the rear seat.

Springfield police say they pulled over a vehicle on Tuesday night after spotting it running a stop sign. The officer saw the unbelted child and the driver trying to hide something.

The driver’s hands also appeared to be covered in a white powder.

A search of the driver turned up heroin as well as $860 cash and drug packaging materials.

Police say the driver also did not have a valid license.

Police say 26-year-old Oscar Caballero is facing a variety of charges including heroin possession and child endangerment. The child’s mother came to get the boy.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
