Police officers searching the car of a Long Island husband and wife arrested for attempting to make a drug sale found the couple's sleeping toddler and a supply of heroin in her diaper bag. Authorities say the Westbury man and woman agreed to sell heroin to an undercover officer and drove to Lynbrook to complete the deal late Saturday night.

Police said they had their 17-month-old daughter in their car.

The drugs in the diaper bag turned up in a search of the vehicle.

The child was given to the custody of her grandmother.
