SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls say three women are in custody after officers found them while intoxicated in a car with six children.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says 18-year-old Shaina Dreaming Bear, 26-year-old Deidre Dreaming Bear and 21-year-old Kimberly White Face are facing six counts of cruelty to a minor.

Clemens says officers responding to a report of an intoxicated woman yelling near a park found the women and the children in a parked car Thursday night.

Clemens says the women “were driving around town” with the children, who are now in protective custody.

Clemens says Shaina Dreaming Bear faces additional charges after police found marijuana and pipes in her diaper bag.

The Sioux Falls women are at the Minnehaha County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys who could comment on the charges.
