TAMPA - On top of the pillow, Hillsborough County deputies found a crying 5-month-old.
Beneath the pillow, deputies found a loaded Smith & Wesson .40-caliber gun.
Deputies arrested the child's mother, 19-year-old Shanika Claritt, on Wednesday afternoon at her Seffner home. They also arrested Delores Franklin, 57, who they say was taking care of the child.
Shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, deputies used a search warrant at the home.
They found a clear baggie with crack in the kitchen, marijuana in the living room and "a large amount of crack cocaine" in a desk, an arrest report states. The Department of Children & Families took the child.
Charges against Claritt and Franklin include child neglect, possession of crack cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and possession of marijuana.
Claritt and Franklin remained in jail this morning. Claritt's bail is set at $31,000, Franklin's at $23,500.
