ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police say two men are under arrest after they entered an Albuquerque Jack in the Box drive-thru displaying an assault rifle and an infant with no car seat.
Police spokesman Simon Drobik says a manager called authorities early Saturday after seeing 28-year-old Mark Richard Cropper with an AR-15 on his lap and 27-year-old Colin Decker holding a baby.
Responding officers say the baby is Decker’s 8-month-old son, Cayden.
They say Cayden was under-dressed and his diaper was extremely soiled.
According to officers, both men smelled of alcohol.
Police recovered four guns in all from the vehicle.
Both men have been booked into Metropolitan Detention Center on a charge of child endangerment.
Cayden is now in custody of the Children, Youth and Families Department.
