BURLINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- Two Racine County residents are accused of conducting heroin sales with their children, ages 1 and 3, present. Authorities say they even offered to leave one child as collateral to ensure their return with additional heroin.
Thirty-two year-old Blair LaRose and 26-year-old Ashley Fay were charged this week with selling heroin and endangering the safety of a child.
The Racine County sheriff's office says LaRose and Fay sold heroin to undercover officers three times. They allegedly had the children with them twice.
Deputies say the suspects once offered to leave a child behind to ensure they came back with more drugs.
A call to their public defender's office after hours Saturday disconnected without taking a message.
The children have been placed in protective custody.
