WALKER, LA — Billy and Lana Henry are looking at child cruelty charges after they forgot they’d brought their infant to Walmart and left the baby in the backseat of their car.
Officers responded to the Walmart parking lot after someone called to report seeing an infant locked in the backseat of a car. Police decided to force their way into the car due to the high temperatures.
Police checked the child for injuries and called the Office of Child Services. As all this was going on, the child’s parents – Billy Henry Jr., 35, and Lana Henry, 32 – had exited the Walmart and were walking toward the car.
When questioned, neither of the dumb fucks remembered they’d even brought their kid, and that the baby must have been locked in the car for about an hour. One officer reported that while questioning the couple, they “were unsteady on their feet and had slurred speech.”
Police would learn from the couple that their condition was the result of them taking Oxycodone. A quick search of Lana’s purse revealed she was a walking drug store. They would find her in the possession of marijuana, Adderall, oxymorphone, and a syringe.
Both Billy and Lana Henry were arrested and charged with child cruelty and drug related offenses.
After the couple were transported to jail, police found Xanax on the floor of the patrol car. Lana admitted that she was the one who dropped the drugs. Then, while inside the jail, police would find Lana smuggled in an Adderall.Tags: Billy Henry, Child Abuse, Child Endangerment, Crime, Drugs, hot car, Lana Henry, Louisiana
