Eight-month-old baby seized after found crawling amid drug gear and stolen goods

An eight-month-old baby has been seized by B.C.’s children’s ministry after being found crawling in a Langley home littered with drug paraphernalia, cigarette butts and stolen goods.

LANGLEY, B.C. — An eight-month-old baby has been seized by B.C.’s children’s ministry after being found crawling in a Langley home littered with drug paraphernalia, cigarette butts and stolen goods.

The RCMP found the baby on August 7th when they went to the home to investigate a report of stolen property being sold on Craigslist.

The Mounties say the home was “disgusting” and drug-related materials, cigarette butts and sharp objects were all within reach of the baby boy, who was seen crawling in dirt among paint balls and tools.

They say the child’s parents were not home and the baby was in the care of some transients who were smoking and showed no concern for the boy.

The baby’s parents arrived home while police and children’s ministry officials were at the scene, but the child was taken into government care.

Police also recovered stolen property from a break and enter in Langley.
