BELLEVILLE, IL – Because of some site issues compounded by the fact that Jaded got me sick, I’m a little behind on some stories, including this one out of Illinois where Sandra J. Bauers, 35, was arrested and charged with selling her children’s Christmas presents for crack. Her mother, 57-year-old Pamela Gyon, wanted her drug-addicted daughter to be a part of her kids Christmas this year so she invited her to go shopping for presents. She used her husband’s disability check to buy $1,000 on gifts for Bauers’ two boys, ages 4 and 5, and other relatives. She had intended for Bauers to take part of the age-old tradition of proving your worth as a parent by the amount of presents you give your kids on Christmas morning, but Bauers had other plans. That night she stole her mother’s car with the presents inside. When she was finally located, she was leaving a motel with the stolen vehicle with a crack pipe in hand, but the presents were missing. Bauers admitted to police that she sold some of them at a crack house, some at a combination pawnshop and liquor store, and some on the street so she could get money to buy crack. Bauers was jailed and held on a $50,000 bond for violating a restraining order her mother had taken out on her for previously stealing jewelry, tools and a car from her. Police were eventually able to recover 80 percent of the missing presents because the owner of the pawnshop was a pretty cool guy and returned them.
