Father of 2 allegedly spiked cookies
A Des Moines father is accused of giving his two young children and ex-wife cookies laced with meth. He allegedly wanted to discredit the children’s mother in their upcoming custody battle. Chad Holm, 37, and his girlfriend Monique Garcia, 43, were questioned by detectives after Holm's ex-wife and 5-year-old son ate part of a cookie topped with frosting made with sugar and meth, both later testing positive for the drug.
Holm and his ex were meth addicts in the past and split up in April 2011. They have two boys, ages 5 and 7, who were in Holm’s custody while his ex was in drug treatment a few months after they split up.
During a supervised visit Sept. 3, the 7-year-old brought his mother cookies wrapped in foil provided to him by Garcia. They tried to eat one of the cookies but stopped because it tasted terrible. Her next drug test was positive for meth, she had her son tested and he was also positive for meth.
Holm denies putting meth into the cookies, telling detectives his ex-wife is trying to cover up her own relapse.
The 7-year-old also tested positive for meth, possibly for environmental reasons. Holm himself tested positive, later forging test results to show negative, according to police. Prosecutors have not filed charges because there is no way to prove who put the meth in the cookies. However, Holm is facing perjury charges for falsifying his drug test results.
Tukwila man assaulted
A homeless Tukwila man from Tukwila was visiting Seattle for the day. He was walking around a park around 2 p.m. when a few people started yelling at him. When he ignored them and started to walk away one of the men punched him in the face.
The man was wearing a tan top hat and a black leather coat. Police arrived but the suspect had already run off and they were unable to find him. The victim told officers he has no idea why the suspect attacked him. He was treated for a bloody nose.
