NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police arrested a 20-year-old Nashville woman after finding crack cocaine in a child's lunchbox.

Officers responded to Briana Wilkins' Capital Point home Tuesday in response to a burglary in progress and found the back door kicked in.

According to police affidavits, while clearing the kitchen to make sure no suspects were in the residence and no one was hurt, an officer observed a set of digital scales with white residue on them, as well as a glass beaker with residue.

During a more extensive search, officers discovered two bags of nearly 17 grams of cocaine in a children's Cars lunchbox sitting on the kitchen counter.

Wilkins later admitted to police that she knew crack cocaine was being cooked in her apartment, around her one-year-old child.

She was booked into the Metro jail on three felony drug counts and one count child endangerment.

Her bond was set at $75,000.
