Chandler, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) -- 19-year-olds Kevin Folk and Justine Rabell, who reside in Tempe Arizona, have been arrested after police say they arranged a crooked drug deal and then brought a 1-year-old infant along for the ride.
According to Chandler police, Rabell's infant son was in the back seat of a car as Kevin Folk and Justine Rabell sat in a Safeway parking lot, conducting a drug deal that was being monitored by police.
As detectives listened in, Folk and Rabell agreed to sell 46 ecstasy tablets for $700 - requesting the money in advance with a promise to return with the drugs. Later, the couple allegedly admitted that they planned to rip off the buyer by not returning with the drugs, according to court documents.
According to court documents, Folk told investigators that selling drugs and accepting money from relatives had been their only source of income for the past two months. He also told police he didn't think about the danger he would put the child in by taking him along on a drug deal.
Folk and Rabell were charged with suspicion of child abuse and drug offenses. Folk was ordered held on $9,000 bail while Rabell is ordered held on $9,788 bail.
Rabell has an outstanding charge for shoplifting that is still pending.
