A Florida deputy admitted to being fed up with a mom and dad after their son was found wandering alone on the road for a second time.

According to Fox 35, a good Samaritan named Erica Strozier was on her way to a doctor’s appointment when she slowed down after seeing a young child walking along the road by himself.

Strozier told Fox 35 that the little boy appeared to be confused and came right up to her when she got out of the car to keep him away from the road:

“I was trying to keep the baby calm and was like, ‘Come here, sweetie,’ and the baby came right up to me. When I first saw him, he was looking confused. The baby was just lost, diapers soiled all the way to the ground. Body covered in nothing but mosquito bites.”

Strozier called 911, and that’s when the deputy arrived — a deputy who has met the child and his parents before.

The deputy took the child to a nearby trailer park where he found the boy’s parents in a “narcotic-induced coma” and foaming at the mouths. The trailer was reported filthy, and there were knives left out and within the kids’ reach.

As Fox 35 reports, the deputy met the family last year when the children were found home alone. This time, the deputy arrested the boy’s mother and father, Yajaira Tirado and Jacob Krueger.

Footage from the responding deputy’s bodycam has also been released. In the video, the officer can be heard asking Tirado if she remembered him, to which she said, “No”:

“You don’t recognize me? I was here the last time this happened. You remember that?”

This time the mom responded saying, “Yeah.”

As the officer put both the mom and dad in handcuffs, he said:

“What did you do? It’s what about you didn’t do. You didn’t watch your kid. Your kid is out in the road. This is a history with you two. This is just a circus. All I want was the kid to get some clothes and get changed. And you guys couldn’t even do that. […]

This is just ridiculous. My patience is done with these two.”

The parents reportedly told authorities that the reason their son was wandering on his own was because the landlord never came to fix the lock on their door.

    I can see why the officer is frustrated because the system is SOOO broken! Obviously this child has been involved with DCF before. DCF will do EVERYTHING and more to RETURN, yes RETURN this child to his parents. That is there first, second and third objective of DCF, to keep the family’s together regardless! That’s why so many children are lost, abused & murdered AFTER DCFs involvement.

    Mandatory Sterilization! When parents are found in drug induced coma!

  • Rhonda 2 years ago

    Broken system! Thank God for the officer that stepped in. Children are far to often neglected and abused over and over due to the broken system!!!! Parenting classes can’t fix sorry scum baby makers. Fix the problem the first time and out them in a good home! Period done deal. No second chances! You assault an adult you go to jail no repeat offenses before your locked up so please tell me why children get thrown back to the wolves time and time again! JUDICIAL SYSTEM STAND UP FOR CHILDREN!

    Well I only see one comment that can see that the parents needs help in there life in order to get off drugs. We all can see that the lady and cop saved the baby. But regardless I pray that the mom and dad are ok from a overdose. And I pray they can see they really need help and accept it. Nobody ever said uhhh when I grow up I want to a scum bag drug addict. They are people to. Do they need there baby back yes in due time and that is only if they are willing to face there demonds and work as hard to stay sobor as they did to get high. Some people needs some one like the police man to step in. So shame on all of you people judging. I sure hope none of your kids grows up and becomes a drug addict. It is really hard sometimes to get back on track. No they do not need any kids right now that is true. But when the devil gets a hold of your soul man let me tell you it is really hard to kick him out because he wants us to fail. And that is where we hold God’s hand and say please help me to get out of this hell I live in. And with that God pulls us out of the fire. I’m not saying what happen was not a bad thing yes it was poor parenting. But my God that I believe in tells me to pray for them and the addicts and the children. I want give up on them so my god tells me to pray for the whole family and tell the lady and police man God bless you for being there when that child needed a hero. So his parents good get better and that baby could have a happy healthy parents. God bless. I’m sure I will have be shamed for saying what I feel.
    But I will pray for you
    Have a blessed life everyone
