DANIELSON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) — State police rescued an infant in a drug raid that resulted in two arrests and the seizure of multiple ecstasy tablets.

Police arrested 24-year-old Ashly McFarline and 25-year-old Pedro Galindez on multiple charges after troopers found them in possession of 87 ecstasy tablets during a search and seizure operation in their Danielson apartment Wednesday morning.

State police arrested McFarline and Galindez on multiple charges, including charges for possession of ecstasy, intent to sell, and operation a drug factory.

Also among the charges was risk of injury to a minor, after police entered the apartment to find a 4-month-old infant sleeping in a bedroom with a 14-inch butcher’s knife under the baby’s pillow. The Department of Children and Families (DCF) was then called to the scene and took custody of the baby.

The arrests were conducted on the scene without incident. Both McFarline and Galindez are being held on $25,000 bond and both are scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court on May 23.

Connecticut state police report that this is the second significant drug arrest made by the state’s Troop D Quality of Life Task Force in the last two days.
