RACINE COUNTY -- As Racine County built their case against the couple, they had an informant set up drug deals on three separate occasions. Deputies say all three times, right in the back seat of the parents' minivan, sat two little girls.

Ashley Fay and her boyfriend Blair Larose live in Salem. Deputies searched their home this week after busting them for allegedly trying to sell heroin.

"I've been told that the house was in deplorable condition, so what kind of life were those two children expected to have?" questioned Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth.

A neighbor, who didn't want to go on camera, has been concerned for the children for some time. He noticed a lot of traffic in and out of the home, and many times, saw the toddlers unsupervised in the back yard.

The alleged drug deal happened in Burlington right here, about ten miles from the couple's home. The conversation so shocking, the couple allegedly suggested they'd leave one of their children as collateral to ensure they'd be back with more heroin.

"Personally, I have worked undercover narcotics. I have been on a number of investigations myself and I have never heard even joking someone saying that they would be willing to leave their child behind as collateral in exchange for narcotics," said Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling.

Sheriff Schmaling says the couple admitted to using heroin daily and selling it to support their habit.

"It's literally incomprehensible to me. It's numbing to think that whether you have an addiction or not that you would actually bring your children into that environment," said Sheriff Schmaling.

As the heroin epidemic spreads, Sheriff Schmaling has this warning. Don't ever try it, not even once. In his words, you're going to get hooked if you try it and the end result is death.
