Toddlers found in room with heroin smokers

TULALIP — A man and woman were arrested Friday and face charges of second-degree criminal mistreatment after they were found smoking heroin in a room with a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old, the Everett Herald reported.

According to the Herald, the man, 31, and the woman, 23,  were arrested by Tulalip Tribal Police Friday. Officers said they were outside of the home Friday and could see that the pair heroin3were smoking heroin on the inside. The police arrested the couple when they came outside, and obtained a search warrant to go inside the house.

Inside, they found two children sleeping under blankets that were burned and reportedly covered in heroin residue. There was also dirty cotton balls and needles within the children’s reach, the Herald reported.

The children were placed in the care of child protective services and the couple are in Snohomish County Jail.

Last year, a Tulalip toddler died from neglect in a car while her mother was inside a home smoking heroin.

  • The World is Ending

    #1 put the adults in a concert room until they are completely sober, that way they can bounce off the walls during withdrawal. #2 give them 20 or so lashes with the Cat O' nine tails (NO PAIN RELIEVERS) then when they heal about a month later do it 4 more times then they only get out of jail if they agree to get treatment if they say "I don't have a problem" then they can stay in jail until they admit they do have a problem, no TV, no internet, for entertainment they can read books, if they finally do get treatment let them know that if they ever endanger the welfare of a child again the punishment will be double the next time. But I do believe people deserve a second chance so after they can prove that they are clean and sober and have jobs for a full year and the place that they live can pass a health and safety inspection they can get the kids back, but they are still subject to random drug test and health inspections of their house for at least 5 years 10 would better.
