Lacey Dawn Christenson, 26, and the baby's father, 29-year-old Colby Glen Wilde, are behind bars on charges of child endangerment, drug distribution and possession.

A Utah man and woman are behind bars after allegedly giving their newborn daughter a cocktail of drugs to help offset heroin withdrawal symptoms and to cover up the fact she was addicted in the first place. "You've got an infant who can not do anything for herself, and the people who should be providing her nurture, and love, and care, are the ones who are harming their child", said Cannon.

The shocking revelation unfolded after Wilde and Christenson entered a Walmart supermarket in the city of Spanish Fork with his two-month-old daughter in a vehicle seat in a shopping trolley.

Wilde reportedly took several items off the store's shelves to return for a cash refund.

Supermarket staff approached him over the deception as he left and he ran away - smashing into the doors and dropping the new-born.

Deputies said Wilde ran away with his daughter in the auto seat. When spotted by security he tried to run out of the store while holding his infant daughter in a vehicle seat. When bystanders also tried to stop him outside the store, he handed the auto seat containing the baby to a stranger in the Walmart parking lot and drove off, abandoning the child.

He was arrested by a sheriff's deputy in the vehicle park. She was arrested and taken to Utah County Jail on an outstanding warrant.

Authorities said Christenson had her other three children with her, boys ages 8, 4, and 2.

Family services contacted the oldest boy's father who agreed to take custody of all the kids because he did not want the children to live apart.

A Utah baby girl was hooked on drugs before she was born and her parents were allegedly feeding her painkillers to hide her addiction from authorities.

Authorities said a Walmart robbery is what led them to the parents and tipped them off about the drug crimes.

Wilde fled the scene - after dropping a vehicle seat holding his infant child multiple times - but was arrested a short time later, according to police, who charged him with driving under the influence of drugs, possession of heroin and methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving without insurance, theft and child abuse.

The newborn baby tested positive for meth, heroin and morphine.

Wilde and Christenson are both being held on a $10,000 cash bail. One of the drugs they found was Suboxone, a prescribed pain medication used for addiction treatment. Christenson admitted to investigators that the crushed Suboxone found in their home on June 28 was the substance used to administer Suboxone to their newborn daughter on April 9 in Utah Valley Hospital.

Police obtained a warrant to search the home, where they found paraphernalia scattered throughout the house.

Christenson was released from jail on June 28, and Wilde was released on July 5 after posting bond.

He was booked for driving under the influence, possession of heroin and methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and having no insurance, police said. As part of this case investigators developed information that Wilde and Christenson were using drugs again and they obtained another search warrant for the house in Elk Ridge.
