Lacresia White, 33, 1217 Burns Ave., was charged Wednesday with use of a minor in a drug trade, possession of a controlled substance, and child endangerment.

According to a police complaint, on Aug. 31, White allegedly drove her 6-year-old daughter to a Coralville Burger King and instructed her to go inside to get a confidential informant. The confidential informant was working with the Johnson County Drug Task Force at the time.

Supposedly, once the daughter told the informant to go to her mother’s car, the drug deal was then conducted.

White allegedly delivered approximately 1 gram of heroin to the individual in exchange for $200.

The 6-year old daughter was reportedly present at the time of exchange.
