Huntington — Police officials have disclosed the discovery of a baby soaked in urine in the back seat of a parked vehicle where four adults allegedly were using heroin.

The Herald-Dispatch says the adults were arrested Friday along U.S. 60 in Huntington, about 52 miles west of Charleston.

Trooper J.A. Roach says troopers saw a 1-year-old boy in the back seat. Roach says the baby's urine formed a puddle in his car seat.
