"Weapons Found In Baby's Crib, Diaper Bags"

I suppose if you are the type to join a gang, deal in drugs, and keep loaded weapons within easy reach, it might just make a certain amount of sense to you to make those weapons available to the babies as well.


SAN ANTONIO -- Eight people, including seven documented gang members, were arrested in a weapons and drug raid Wednesday night on the city's East Side.

Bexar County sheriff's deputies said they confiscated nine pistols, an assault rifle and various high-capacity magazine clips at a home in the 1200 block of Aransas Avenue. ...

"We recovered one loaded weapon in the crib," said Sgt. Ron Tooke of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office. "And another diaper bag with two loaded weapons and 30-round capacity magazines in the diaper bag. And another two loaded weapons in the sides of the diaper bags and throughout the floor of the home. And they were where the children were getting into cabinets and loaded weapons everywhere."

The sheriff's department says the household was apparently gearing up for a defense from a drive-by attack.
