Two women were arrested after being found in a car with marijuana, allegedly snorting prescription pills with two young children, authorities said on December 8, 2016.

However, the story which was blasted all over Facebook by Pennsville Police Department’s “Official” Page no longer has any trace of the incident.

Rachel M. Bakos, 31, of Somerdale and Brittany Sparks, 31, of Elmer were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Pennsville Chief of Police Allen J Cummings.

Officers were called to the parking lot of the Pennsville Market Street on South Broadway just before 10 p.m. on Dec. 8 to investigate the report of suspicious activity by Brittany Sparks and Rachel Bakos in a vehicle.

Police couldn’t find the vehicle at the shopping center, but located Brittany Sparks and Rachel Bakos in the car at a convenience store nearby.

When officers questioned Rachel Bakos and Brittany Sparks, Cummings said, they allegedly told police they had been ingesting a prescription drug.

Police found suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the car.

Bakos had two of her children in the vehicle, ages 9 and 12, the chief said.

Both Bakos and Sparks were released by police after being charged.

Rachel Bakos’ children were turned over to family members and the state Division of Children and Families was advised of the incident, according to Cummings.
