Utah parents give newborn drugs hours after birth

According to the Miami Herald, Lacey Christenson and Colby Wilde have been jailed on suspicion and distribution of a controlled substance, child endangerment as well as possession of methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities told KSTU that the couple admitted that Christenson had abused prescription drugs and heroin while pregnant with her daughter.

"The hospital's team of specially trained caregivers closely monitors each newborn for signs of any difficulty". Employees said Wilde, with his 2-month-old daughter in hand, took items from the shelf and tried to return the items for a cash refund. He ran into the store's doors, which cause the vehicle seat to drop to the ground and roll over.

After dropping the auto seat and his daughter a second time, he gave a stranger the child and fled the scene in his vehicle, police said.

She was arrested on an outstanding warrant regarding a traffic violation.

Christenson was inside Walmart with Wilde when the theft occurred.

After the couple's arrest in June, police searched their home and allegedly found drug paraphernalia throughout, including next to a baby bassinet and a child's sippy cup. The father of the eldest child took custody of all four children.

During the widening investigation, the infant was taken to a hospital where it tested positive for methamphetamine, heroin, and morphine.

"[Christenson and Wilde] admitted that, after their daughter was born on April 9, later that same day, Wilde applied some of the crushed Suboxone pills to the infant's gums while nurses and other medical staff were out of the room", said the sheriff's office in the press release.

Since all four children were living in the home, Wilde and Christenson were each charged with four additional counts of child endangerment.

Lacey Christenson, 26, was using drugs while she was pregnant.

The couple remains in jail, as their bail was set at $10,000 each.

"I don't have any doubt that Colby and Lacy love their kids", Sgt. Spencer Cannon of the Utah County Sheriff's Office told KSTU.

"They're addicts right now with serious addiction problems, and they're not in a good place to be taking care of themselves even, let alone anybody else", Cannon said. When she arrived, she discovered numerous items of drug paraphernalia and called the Sheriffs Office.

Authorities say the parents have a checkered record with law enforcement in the few weeks since first crossing their path on June 26.

Both Christenson and Wilde were released from custody by July 5, but detectives continued to investigate the couple and soon learned they were allegedly using drugs again.
