Drug induced couple sell baby at walmart

Couple on drugs try to sell their baby to Walmart shoppers.

Couple sell baby in Walmart store parking while drug induced. The pair face child endangerment charges after they were to take $25 for their child at Walmart. The child is safe, and the people at Walmart, who were approached about the sale had called police.

Officer Lalo Villegas of the Salinas police department said that Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested. They had allegedly approached two women outside Walmart and asked if they'd like to purchase the 18-month baby. Initially, the women thought Fousek was joking, but when he became persistent, they reported it to police.

"They did an outstanding job and gave our officers good information. I don't know if they're mothers, but they definitely had that instinct to help," Officer Lalo Villegas said in a statement. Both suspects were arrested at their home shortly after the incident.

They appeared to be high on methamphetamine and the house was in disarray. Police reports indicated that Tomasini told Child Protective Services, who took the baby, that she had breast-fed the infant while under the influence. In addition, they were booked on charges of being under the influence of narcotics. Fousek received an additionally charge of violating probation.

I saw their mugshots somewhere. Such an odd couple, united by meth.

Thank goodness those women reported it and that the baby is out of their care. That's so sad.

Saw this on the news! Sooo glad the woman reported them. I'm glad they tried to sell the baby at walmart & not to some other druggie, who knows what could have happened.

Makes you wonder how many times this happen & it's not reported.
