Parents arrested for giving newborn drugs

While the parents were in jail, authorities were contacted by a woman asked to care for the pets at Wilde and Christenson's home. Wilde picked up the auto seat and continued running, but hit a pillar and dropped the seat again, he said.

Wilde admitted he first applied crushed Suboxone pills to the infant's gums in hospital the day she was born. When spotted by security he tried to run out of the store while holding his infant daughter in a auto seat. She had her three other children with her.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon, a Utah County Sheriff's spokesperson, said: "They administered the drug hours after baby was born", according to a report from WLTX19. Christenson and Wilde told police that friends had told them it was a good way to hide drug withdrawal symptoms in a baby.

Police said they obtained a search warrant on June 28 and found drug paraphernalia in many areas of the home, including next to a baby bassinet and a child's sippy cup.

Two of Christenson's other children, ages 2 and 4, tested positive for meth. A Deputy with the Utah County Sheriff's Office found Wilde driving away and made the arrest.

Drug addiction is now the second leading cause for removal from parental custody, following child neglect, which social workers note is often exacerbated by drug use in the home. The Deputy arrested Wilde and booked him into the Utah County Jail for DUI, possession of heroin and methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and no insurance. Another man fathered the oldest boy while the younger three were born to Christenson and Wilde.

The statement revealed Christenson was still inside the store with her three sons.

Spanish Fork Police contacted officials with the Utah Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) and took custody of the children. The infant was brought to the hospital for an evaluation. If there is a known history of drug use by a mother, then her baby will be evaluated and if necessary, receive treatment for withdrawal symptoms. "They took this medication crushed it up".

However, after both Christenson and Wilde were released, police received tips that the couple went right back to buying and taking illegal drugs and both were re-arrested and charged with another series of drug charges.

Infants born to opioid addicts are often afflicted by neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), which presents itself as host of withdrawal symptoms that include tremors, hyperactive reflexes, vomiting, dehydration, the inability to gain weight and seizures, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "(They) told investigators they talked to friends about how to mask signs of drug dependence in an infant, and that they discussed this issue with each other".

They obtained another search warrant for the couple's house, and this time found Wilde smoking heroin. The infant tested positive for methamphetamine, heroin and morphine. The two remain in prison, and their bail has been set at $10,000.

After being in-and-out from jail due to bail, the couple was arrested again on July 18 and booked on felony charges, including distribution of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, possession of heroin and meth, endangerment of a child and possession of drug paraphernalia.
