California Couple, Patrick Fousek & Samantha Tomasini, Face Child Endangerment Charges for Trying to Sell 6 Month Old Baby at Walmart
You can buy pretty much everything at WALMART these days, who knew you could buy a baby as well? What was the going rate … $25! Sick, absolutely sick.
A California couple, 38 year old Patrick Fousek and 20 year old Samantha Tomasini were arraested and face child endangerment charges after police say they tried to sell their 6 month-old baby for $25 outside a Walmart store in Salinas, CA. According to reports, the couple approached two woman in the parking lot in an attempt to sell the child. The woman thought that it was a joke until they realized that the situation was disgustingly serious.
Salinas police spokesman, Officer Lalo Villegas, said Thursday that Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested early Wednesday, hours after Fousek allegedly approached two women outside Walmart and asked if they’d like to purchase his child.
Here is a big shock to all … the couple selling the child were meth heads! The 6 month old little girl has been taken into protective custody. The police tracked down the couple and reportedly found the parents living in squalor and high on methamphetamines.
Fousek and Tomasini were arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday at their home. Officers said the couple appeared high on methamphetamine and the house was in disarray. A police report also claimed that Tomasini told Child Protective Services, who took the baby, that she had breast-fed the infant while under the influence, Villegas said.
The couple was also booked on charges of being under the influence of narcotics, and Fousek was also served with an extra charge of violating probation. Villegas did not have details of Fousek’s previous brush with the law.
