Criminal Justice Quote: Meth Parents Abandon Three Children in Woods

     A Florida couple was arrested for allegedly abandoning their three young children in the woods….Michael and Sarah Butcher, both 30, were arrested on February 28, 2014 after illegally parking their red truck in a private RV park in Punta Gorda, Florida. Cops later found crystal meth in their vehicle's glove compartment, along with a syringe and a burnt spoon….

     After the pair was taken to jail--where they repeatedly claimed to be brother and sister--the police received a call that three children were found walking in the woods, "very dirty, hungry, and cold."…They told police officers their parents were named Michael and Sarah. The children--ages 10, 8, and 6--had walked nearly two miles before they were found….They said their parents had driven them to a wooded area where they often went camping. While they played in the woods, their parents drove off in their truck….

     The couple has been held without bond….
