Cops: Mom sneaks cigs in son's mouth

June 11, 2009 9:02:28 AM PDT
A Hempstead mother allegedly put tobacco and matches in a balloon that she stuck in her son's mouth in a failed attempt to sneak the smokes into jail to give her husband. Police say 32-year-old Keeya Williams-Bass was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree promoting prisoner contraband.

She was released on a desk appearance ticket and will appear June 23 in First District Court.

Authorities say Williams-Bass put "a balloon wrapper filled with a brownish substance believed to be tobacco and approximately 10 match heads" in the mouth of her 2-year-old son when she visited the Nassau County Correctional Facility in East Meadow.

She apparently planed to sneak the tobacco in to her boyfriend, but the plot was foiled when a corrections officer saw the child chewing on the balloon.

Her 4-year-old daughter was also present at the time.
