Jordyn Freeman and Randy McMillin: Drug addled parents arrested after naked toddler found wandering IHOP parking lot along with two other children in car after passing out.
A drug-addled couple have been arrested after their toddler child was observed walking around the parking lot of a Florida IHOP – naked.
Jordyn Freeman, 24, and Randy McMillin, 27, were taken into custody by Panama City police after they were found in the front seat of their van, with two ‘soiled’ nine-month-olds in the backseat covered with pillows and blankets, early Wednesday morning.
IHOP employees arriving to work at around 5.30am found the toddler walking around alone and wrapped him in an apron, cops said.
The two nine-month-old children were also found near methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in the couple’s car. Failed attempts to wake the ‘narced’ parents up led to cops having to be called.
A statement on Facebook revealed the children being given clean clothes and diapers and placed with the state Department of Children and Families.
Staff at the pancake restaurant cooked them a meal before all three were placed in the custody of the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
Jordyn Freeman and Randy McMillin: Both under the influence of drugs.
The children’s mother, Freeman, and McMillin, her fiancé, are both from Ohio and have been charged with child neglect, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Told a Panama City police spokesperson in a released statement, ‘Panama City Police are proud to highlight the quick and caring action of the employees of a local restaurant and our officers.
‘As IHOP employees were arriving to the restaurant around 5.30am this morning, they noticed a toddler with no clothes on wandering around the parking lot and wrapped the toddler in an apron.
‘They also noticed a van in the parking lot with two adults passed out inside and were unable to wake the adults up.
‘The adults were identified as Jordyn Freeman, 24, and Randy McMillin, 27, of West Portsmouth, Ohio.
‘Both were under the influence of drugs and officers could see the drugs inside the van. Officers also found nine-month old twins in the van. One was covered with blankets and pillows.
‘All three children appeared to be in good health but needed clean clothes and diapers. Our officers helped care for the children by changing their clothing while the IHOP employees provided the children with pancakes.
‘Thank you, IHOP, for being a wonderful community partner.’
The parents’ arrest underscores the unrelenting drug issue persisting everyday America who continue to struggle with addiction and a moribund existence in a forlorn America which continues to see a deep divide between the haves and have nots and those who see no option but to seek escape, no matter how transient or temporary….
