Minneapolis, MN – Rebecca Rachelle Hill, 37, was arrested with her daughter on October 12th while reportedly shoplifting from a Macy’s store in Mall of America.
She allegedly attempted to give officers false identification information, but was outed when her fingerprints were run against a police database.
Once authorities were able to make contact with Hill’s daughter’s father, he told them that the girl and her mother had been driving around in a vehicle stolen from a relative and smoking marijuana and heroin for the past few weeks. The father knew this because he had previously taken his daughter, who had been going through withdrawal, to the hospital where she tested positive for both heroin and marijuana. The girl had also been depressed and cutting herself on the wrists and thighs.
When faced with this wealth of information, Hill reportedly admitted to purchasing the drugs for her daughter as well as doing them with her, about three times per day, supposedly in an effort to keep the girl from suffering further withdrawal symptoms. The police totally saw the logic in this excuse, gave her a pat on the back for being a kick-ass mom and sent her on her way with her sleepy-eyed daughter.
Kidding. She was charged with child endangerment and second degree sale of a controlled substance. Conviction on the latter charge could get her 25 years in the slammer.
Hill’s daughter would be in the running for her high school’s “Most Likely To Wind Up Murdered In An Alley By A John” award, but she’s still several years away from going to high school. Strong work, mom. Way to protect your daughter, dad.
