Parents Arrested After California Toddler Swallows Cocaine

ATASCADERO (CBS/AP) – The California parents of a toddler have been arrested after the boy swallowed cocaine.

The 18-month old showed signs of being under the influence of cocaine when Atascadero police officers arrived Wednesday at the couple’s apartment.

Investigators said the child’s mother, 20-year-old Priscilla Tabarez, had called for an ambulance.

The boy was taken to Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton for treatment. He is now in protective custody.

Besides Tabarez, the toddler’s 26-year-old father, Daniel Sanchez, and the woman’s 18-year-old brother, Isaac Tabarez, were arrested and booked for investigation of felony child endangerment. They were still in jail on Thursday with bail set at $100,000.

    Some people are not meant to be parents. Please people, if you have young children, please save your drugs money to support them and not leaving your coke where they can get access to.

    Apparently the censors can’t handle a little humor. It is too bad that the truth about some folks can’t be told.
