San Antonio, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Nicolas Lalanne and Elizabeth Lewis, both 21, were jailed Wednesday after they allegedly locked their 1-year-old child in a closet before heading to the pet store to buy food for their pet snake.
According to San Antonio Police, officers were dispatched after a maintenance worker stopped by the couple's apartment to fix a water leak and heard a baby crying. That's when he reportedly discovered the 1-year-old child left alone and locked inside a closet inside the apartment.
Investigators say the couple left the child alone at the residence to purchase a mouse for their pet snake. The couple reportedly took the pet snake with them to the store which was found on the floor of the couple's vehicle.
Lalanne and Lewis were booked into jail on a charge of child abandonment.
