Employee Sees This Sticking Out Of Parents' Arms As They Order Coffee - Immediately Dials 911

An employee at popular chain ‘Dunkin’ Donut’s’, in Hyannis, Massachusetts, was appalled after discovering a couple blatantly using heroine while coming through the drive-thru with their children. Mother, Tiffany Tinkham and father Lance Hillier, were both under the influence of the drug’s powerful, euphoric ‘high’ while they were driving with their children in the back seat. Ms. Tinkham still had a needle stuck in her arm when she ordered her coffee while Mr. Hillier was passed out behind the wheel. When the employee’s at ‘Dunkin Donut’s’ realized the severity of the situation and subsequently, the danger the children were in, they immediately took down the license plate number and informed the authorities. Although the couple left the store quickly, they did not get very far before Officer Nicole Bevilaqua found them driving on the highway.

When Officer Bevilaqua ordered the couple to pull over, she watched them change seats while the car was still in motion. This sparked suspicion in Officer Bevilaqua, who searched the couple’s car and found Suboxone and marijuana. Both Ms. Tinkham and Mr. Hillier have been charged with reckless endangerment of a child, driving under the influence of heroine as well as reckless operation of a motor vehicle. Ms. Tinkham was also charged with possession of a ‘class b’ drug and of marijuana.

The children of the couple revealed to police that they regularly witness their mother getting high on heroine and other opioids, claiming “Mommy has to use needles all the time… she tells me to close my eyes or look out the window when she uses them, but I never do”. This heartbreaking revelation is one in a string of cases, revealing a serious drug use problem affecting parents across Massachusetts and the rest of America. Children are constantly witnessing these horrifying acts and are left disturbed, confused and abandoned when the inevitable arrest or overdose occurs.
