Salinas, California (The Weekly Vice) - Samantha Tomasini, 20, and Patrick Fausek, 38, were jailed Wednesday after they reportedly tried to sell a baby in front of a Wal-Mart store for a whopping $25.
According to Salinas police, Fausek approached two women who were leaving the Wal-Mart store on North Davis Road and requested the use of their cellular phone. As he was making his phone call, he noticed the woman playing with the baby and asked if they wanted to purchase his six-month-old daughter for $25.
The women stated that they thought the man was kidding until he became more persistent, making them suspicious. They declined his offer, took note of his license plate number and reported the incident to police.
Investigators say the couple was arrested at their home around 1:00 a.m, hours after the incident. Officers reported that the house was in shambles and the couple was believed to be high on methamphetamine. Tomasini admitted to child protective services that she had breast-fed the infant while under the influence in the past.
Fausek and Tomasini were booked into jail and charged with child endangerment, attempting to dissuade a witness, being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Fausek was also charged with violating probation.
While being held at the Monterey County Jail, Fausek was assaulted by several inmates who heard about his crimes on the news. He was treated for bruises to his face and two broken ribs at Natividad Medical Hospital. The assault is under investigation. No charges have been filed.
The couple is due to appear in court on Friday, July 7th, when they will be assigned public defenders.
