Here is a tragic story with a little bit of a silver lining. The moral of the story is DON’T DO DRUGS!
A heartwarming photo of a police officer in West Virginia cradling a baby girl after he helped to rescue the 14-month-old has gone viral.
St Albans police Sgt Philip Bass was part of a group of officers who responded to a shoplifting call Monday morning at a local Kroger grocery store.
While at the store, officers were alerted by store employees to a woman later identified as Donnyell Harrison, 39, who had locked herself in the store’s bathroom with a crying baby.
‘The lady let us in the bathroom and then we saw her, and this little baby, she was sitting in a buggy with a baby bottle of Dr. Pepper,’ Bass told WCHS-TV.
And now for the bad part…
‘And she said, ‘Well, I didn’t have anything else to give her!’ And I said, ‘Well, you’re in Kroger!”
Cpt James Agee, one of the other officers who responded to the scene, said there were ‘obvious signs of drugs’ in the bathroom, including ‘a lot of pills visible,’ WCHS-TV reported.
Harrison, who is not the baby’s mother, was arrested and charged with drug possession with the intent to distribute, police said in a news release.
Police said the baby’s mother is currently in jail and left the baby with another person who gave her to Harrison to take care of.
The sad thing is that plenty of good people are trying to adopt across the country, meanwhile there are people treating an innocent young child in this despicable manner. Some people have no shame.
