LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas woman has been convicted of smuggling methamphetamine inside the car seats where her children were sitting.

Court records show 38-year-old Elsa Solis of Batesville was convicted Wednesday on charges that include conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute meth.

An attorney for Solis did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Federal prosecutors say methamphetamine was found in the bottom of car seats Solis‘ two children were sitting in following a traffic stop in July 2015 in central Arkansas. The ages of the children were not released.

Prosecutors say Solis faces up to 23 years in prison when sentenced. A sentencing date was not set.
