A Corpus Christi Police Officer was flagged down by a crying 10 year old female.

Medics arrived and contacted both occupants. They were evaluated and cleared by medics. Because the two suspects were operating a vehicle with the child inside and both were apparently smoking synthetic, officers arrested Kendra Pollack (05-17-1990) and Hector Rodriguez Jr. (06-4-1990). Officers located a synthetic cannabis cigarette while doing a inventory of the vehicle. Both suspect were additionally charged and transported to the City Detention Center.
