Say hello and Happy Holidays to Sandra J. Bauers.
She’s a piece of shit, according to police. Such a piece of shit that she’d steal her children’s Christmas presents to buy crack. Seriously.
Sheriff’s Capt. Steven Johnson said Bauers, the mother of two young sons, stole about $1,000 worth of toys and gifts that the children’s grandmother bought last week. Bauers then sold the gifts to buy crack, he said.
The children — two boys, ages 4 and 5 — were staying with their grandmother, Bauers’ mother, who has a restraining order against Bauers.
Despite the restraining order, the grandmother, Pamela Gyon, wanted Bauers to be a part of the children’s Christmas, so she invited her daughter to go shopping with her.
“That was my error,” Pamela Gyon said. “She had a drug habit. I tried to help her as her mother, but drugs are more important.”
Mommy, what happened to the Wii system grandma, I mean Santa, got us for Christmas,’
Shut up, you little shit. Don’t you see that mommy is getting the shakes?
Look, we understand that drugs have a horrible grip on the human mind. We watch Intervention. We used to be so hooked on caffeine that stopping cold turkey was insane. Just the thought of a Pepsi in a frosty mug sent us into a rage.
But stealing Christmas gifts for your kids? Yeah, not good on the socially acceptable list.
“We had Nerf machine guns, the big ones. Lots of t-shirts and jeans and socks and underwear. Pillow pets,” said the grandmother, Gyon.
