Couple arrested after toddlers wandering unsupervised

  • Follow Crime & courts

A couple was arrested Friday after their 2-year-old twins were seen wandering around outside unsupervised.

Heather Lynn Chancey, 28, and Thomas Lawrence Lucree, 26, were charged with two counts of deprivation of a minor after the children, one boy and one girl, were seen wandering around outside their Boykin Road home.

Officers arrived at a trailer park at the 2300 block of Boykin Road around 6:45 p.m. after receiving reports of a toddler in the roadway. They found another toddler on the porch of a residence and both were unsupervised, according to a sheriff’s report. Both were dirty and wearing only diapers.

According to the incident report, Chancey told authorities that she and Lucree had fallen asleep after she had smoked marijuana and Lucree had used meth. 

The children were turned over to the Department of Family and Children’s Services.

Thank God for watching over these children. This could have been a much sadder story this AM.

Good parents they are not..

Good parents they are not.. Fix them so they cannot have any more. One smoked pot and the other meth. I wonder if they will be charged for the drugs?

Trash

I think DFACS can be heavy handed at times, but this trashy pair need to be monitored closely and those babies taken away if necessary. Lying around smoking dope and doing meth with children to be watched??????????

No hope

When two year old kids are left to fend for themselves, chances are they will be just like their worthless parents, if they survive to adulthood.

You have to wonder what these

You have to wonder what these egg and sperm donors will get the kids for their 5th birthday... a crack pipe of their own?

Just wonder why Ms. Chance

Just wonder why Ms. Chance would volunteer information to authorities that she had smoked weed and Lucree had used meth? I doubt either will have a job come Monday.

A Job, Raul?

Do you honestly think either of these two are gainfully employed?

If this culture continues,

If this culture continues, good moms may become extinct. We can't keep handing out government money for people to avoid their responsibilities and lay up taking drugs. It is just not working. The government and those who support their liberal ideas need to attend a mandatory support group entitled..."When Help Isn't Helpful".

raul.... you'd be amazed what people will "spontaneously utter", especially under the influence of drugs.

@cynical. If Mr. Lucree is

@cynical. If Mr. Lucree is the one on FB I think he is, he has a job. That will probably change.
