Michael Penn was walking along the streets of New Castle, Delaware, with his three young children, obviously unaware that a warrant had been issued for his arrest for shoplifting from a Verizon store.

Upon seeing him, New Castle Police spotted Penn and told him to stop where he was, so he did what any “normal father” would do, he stuffed the drugs he was carrying into the pants of his 8-month-old baby boy’s diaper, according to police.

Just before the officers took 25-year-old Penn into custody, he was spotted shoving something into his infant son’s pants. Officers then discovered that Penn had put 16 baggies of heroin into the young child’s diaper, according to Senior Lt. Adam Brams.

It became obvious that the unrepentant thief was out with his children selling drugs, when police officers discovered that the baggies of heroin were stamped with names such as “Bioshock” and “Death.”

Along with the shoplifting charge, Penn was also charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest, possession of heroin, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Obviously, the father had not known about the arrest warrant for shoplifting from a Verizon store in New Castle, otherwise he wouldn’t have been so silly to be found in possession of illegal drugs, or would he?

Penn has been identified as the thief who stole a Samsung tablet and other items from the Verizon store last month, when detectives viewed a store surveillance video, according to Brams.  According to Brams, when officers first saw Penn on the streets, he was carrying his 8-month-old son and 5-year-old daughter while his other son, 7, rode a bicycle by his side.

Brams went on to say that Penn told the arresting officers that he had tried to hide the drugs down the pants of his child because he was scared. He added that Penn was also found in possession of another bag containing a Xanax pill, for which he had no prescription. The total weight of heroin recovered from the infant’s diaper was .24 grams.

Penn’s three children were turned over into the custody of their grandmother and Family Services have been notified, according to court documents.

Penn was later released on $4,500 unsecured bail bond pending a hearing before the courts.

    I hate that beitch Anastasia but shes right he is stupid. Hes gonna go to jail over stupid shit and now his kids wont have their father. SOME of these stupid men suffer from peter pan syndrome; they just cant or wont grow up and be men. Every culture have official ceremonial rites of passage that span hundreds even thousands of years except us look at Jewish ppl they have bar mitzvah that signify transition into manhood and Jewish girls have their bat mitzvah signifying transition into wmnhood. Crime and Prison is rite of passage for blkboys and teen pregnancy is rite of passage for blkgirls. Mama still callin ray ray pookie and daquan and treyshaun and deandre their “baby” when theyre 25 and their still lettin their baby boys suck their teat and dont cut the umbilical cord these baby boys cant do no wrong in mamas eyes. These mamas didnt have husbands to raise these baby boys into manhood so they dont know how to be men and the examples of manhood they have in the hood is drug dealers and thugs and corrupt pastors that po’ azz ppl keep giving their change to…no doctors teachers businessmen entreprenuers professors tech professionals no examples of blk husbands and fathers taking care of their families. Yeah somebody gonna run their azz up in here and tell me im wrong and i hate myself and all the other stupid sheit blk ppl say when they are in denial. Thats cool though becuz me and my brother had our rite of passage it came from our FATHER and mother who raised up me and my brother right moms loved us and made us self sufficient pushed both of us off the teat and cut the umbilical cords my brother joined the military i went to college and we didnt go back home becuz we was grown and made grown lives for ourselves. No oow babies no commiting crime no prison we both bought our own homes. Today brother is married he and sis in law just had a baby I got married to my man last week and we live good and we thank our parents for being loving and tough and not clinging to us for dear life and raising us right. Blkppl gotta do better stop blamin the white man the white man aint raisin blk blk baby boys and baby girls now im out.

      Oh come on, Jewish people aren’t even Jewish! Read Genesis 10 and you will see that they descended from Askenaz, son of Gomer, not Abraham, Isaac and Jacob from whom the descendants of Judah came. Judah was a son of Jacob. The people who call themselves Jews are Ashkenazi or Ashkenazim. Look it up. Why they claim to be Jews is an interesting story.
