    SALINAS -- A couple was arrested on child endangerment charges after they attempted to sell their 6-month-old baby for $25 outside a Walmart store, according to police.

    The couple, Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested after Fousek allegedly approached two women outside the retail store and asked them if he could use their cell phone, then if they would like to buy his infant child, said Salinas police spokesman, Officer Lalo Villegas.

    The women at first thought Fousek was joking, but then reported the incident to police after he became persistant about making the sale.

    Police say Fousek immediately took off in a car with Tomasini after the failed sale of their child. The women were able to take down the vehicle's license plate number and pass it along to officers.

    Officers arrested Fousek and Tomasini at their home, which was in disarray, Villegas said. Officers said the couple appeared to be high on methamphetamine at the time of the arrest.

    According to the police report, Tomasini told Child Protective Services that she has breast-fed the baby under the influence.

    The couple was also booked on charges of being under the influence of narcotics, and Fousek was also served with an extra charge of violating probation.

    According to officials from the Monterey County Sheriff's Department, Patrick Fousek was arrested along with his twin brother back in 2006 after probation officers found the men were running a meth lab.

    Fousek and Tomasini are due in court Friday for arraignment.

    This further ruined an already bad day. This is another example of why legalizing addicting, mind altering drugs is practical in theory but not in practice.

    Frankly, I'm just happy they found those people before anymore harm could be done to the baby. Maybe they can find them a new home. They're still an infant, so adoption shouldn't be as difficult, at least I hope...

    Tough times. In a healthy economy, they could've sold it for $525.

    :O look at that they were on crystel meth when they tried to sell it, see how good drugs are for you. We should legalize them and watch people try to sell their babies..

    You are being hysteric here... There's a huge difference between Marijuana and Crack. People do worse things on Alcohols. I'll like to see you point out a source where someone ever asked for cracks to be legalize.
