Sycamore police: Mother drove drunk with kids in car

SYCAMORE – A 33-year-old Sycamore woman allegedly drove drunk at 7 a.m. Sunday with her two young children, as well as open beer and marijuana, in the car.

Andrea J. Beeh, of the 300 block of South California Street in Sycamore, was charged Sunday with two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, child endangerment, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple traffic citations including speeding and driving without insurance.

Sycamore Police Lt. Darrell Johnson said officers received a call around 7 a.m. Sunday morning alleging there was a reckless driver near Peace and Bethany roads.

An officer spotted the vehicle speeding northbound on Somonauk Road before hitting a curb and continuing to drive, police said.

After Beeh pulled over, Johnson said the officer saw open containers of beer and a smoking pipe in the car.

Johnson said he believed Beeh was headed home after coming back from work near Somonauk and picked up her children from a DeKalb home.
