Po­lice: Grand­fa­ther brought kids to drug deal at res­tau­rant

NASHVILLE - Po­lice say a Nashville cou­ple has been charged with bring­ing chil­dren along on a drug deal at a fast­food res­tau­rant.

The Ten­nessean re­ports Lawrence Thomp­son, 51, took his 1-year-old grand­son into the re­stroom of an un­named res­tau­rant while his 53year-old girl­friend, Dean Moser, waited in the car with two other chil­dren, ages 4 and 6.

Thomp­son was there to buy heroin, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Nar­cotics de­tec­tives ar­rested the cou­ple dur­ing a ve­hi­cle stop for a traf­fic vi­o­la­tion. Dur­ing the stop, Thomp­son handed de­tec­tives a folded piece of pa­per con­tain­ing a small amount of heroin along with a spoon for cooking it.
