Alabama mom, Tierra Tocorra Hill, arrested after cocaine found in child’s bag

An Alabama mom was arrested after sheriff’s deputies found two kilos of cocaine in the blue Nike backpack her 3-year-old child was carrying.

Mobile County sheriff’s deputies arrested Tierra Tocorra Hill, 35, after discovering $450,000 worth of narcotics and several firearms during a search of her car and home, according to WKRG.

Narcotics squad deputies received information that the mother had large quantities of drugs inside the home she shared with her four children, ages 3, 8, 10 and 15, and started watching the house.

Tierra Tocorra Hill was arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine, second-degree possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence, and four counts of chemical endangerment of a child.

They waited for Hill to leave in her car, then arrested her during a traffic stop. They searched the vehicle and allegedly found 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, a handgun and a small amount of marijuana, the local CBS affiliate station reported.

But this discovery only scratched the surface.

Narcotics investigators obtained a search warrant at Hill’s home, which they executed shortly after.

Inside the house, they met the little child with the blue backpack. They searched the bag and allegedly discovered 2 kilos of cocaine inside.

“It’s safe to say that the 3-year-old probably did not put the drugs in his backpack,” Mobile County Sheriff Paul Burch told the local news station. “Each kilo weighs 2.2 pounds and is commonly called a brick. So you have two bricks in the backpack carried by a three-year-old.”

Police found three kilograms of cocaine in two separate bags belonging to the mother’s children.

Officers also found another kilo and two handguns in another backpack in the house.

All four children were inside the home at the time, with no adults present. Drugs and weapons were easily accessible to children, the sheriff’s office noted.

“Let’s say making a bad decision, I think that’s giving too much credit. I think she made a deliberate decision,” Burch said.

Drugs and weapons were easily accessible to children.

“I think she made a deliberate decision to drive around with significant amounts of drugs and a gun in her car and unintentionally leave her children at home with even more cocaine and drugs. So it’s a deliberate action, not a bad decision,” the sheriff said. added.

Hill was charged with trafficking cocaine, second-degree possession of marijuana, tampering with physical evidence and four counts of chemical endangerment of a child.
