A disturbing traffic stop landed a Mississippi mother in jail.

Police say when they pulled the woman over - they found her 5-year-old and 12-year-old daughters riding without their seat belts on.

Officers investigated a bit more, and found a pipe and two bags of methamphetamine - in the 5-year-old girl's pocket.

Police later found out that the mom - who feared she would be busted - ordered the girls to hide the drugs.

The woman now faces drug and obstruction of justice charges.

Her daughters are in the care of Social Services.
