CrimeTheftCrime, Law and Justice

A Lancaster couple were arrested and their baby was placed in protective custody after deputies found rock cocaine and cash while serving a search warrant at a home, authorities said Thursday.

The search warrant was served at the home in the 4800 block of West Avenue L-14 as part of a followup investigation to a burglary in the area two weeks ago, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The department said deputies found about two ounces of cocaine wrapped in small plastic bags.

The baby was handed over to the county Department of Children and Family Services. The child's age was not disclosed.

Ebonie Fong and Cornell Glass, both 22, were arrested on suspicion of child endangerment, possession of cocaine base for sale and receiving stolen property. They were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at the Antelope Valley courthouse.
