Add this to the list of things you can't buy at Walmart: Babies. A meth-addicted couple from Salinas, California, tried to sell their six-month old baby for $25 outside a local Walmart Tuesday. Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested not long after they seriously approached two women and offered their child for sale. Officers said that couple appeared high on methamphetamine at the time of the arrest and the police report claims the mother breast-fed the baby while high on meth. [HuffPost]
