San Jose parents accused of stashing 55K fentanyl pills under baby’s crib


Written by KTVU staff

SAN JOSE, Calif. (FOX-35)- The Santa Clara County District Attorney charged two San Jose parents on Thursday with stashing a backpack full of 55,000 fentanyl pills under their baby's crib – one of the largest seizures of the deadly opioids in county history.

Octavian Moreno, 27, and Krystal Delgado, 23, will be arraigned later in the day on three counts of possessing narcotics for sale, one count of child endangerment, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Efforts to reach the couple or determine if they had an attorney were not immediately successful. 

Investigators with the Santa Clara County Specialized Enforcement Team on Monday also found 13 pounds of marijuana, 1.5 pounds of cocaine, a loaded firearm, two digital scales, and almost $4,000 in cash.

Police searched the couple’s apartment, which also found 13 pounds of fentanyl in pill form. The pills were in plastic bags with "10k" labeled on them. 

Officers found the couple’s one-year-old baby playing in his playpen a few feet away from one of the bags of marijuana, prosecutors said. The cocaine was found in a kitchen cabinet next to the baby’s formula, while the gun was in an unlocked drawer in the same kitchen.

Two babies in Santa Clara County, known as Baby Phoenix and Baby Winter, have already died of fentanyl overdose.

Prosecutors charged the parents in both those cases with murder. 

The baby in this case did not die, but DA Jeff Rosen said in a statement that he wants these charges to serve as a warning to all parents. 

"I am relieved today that we have not added another name to that tragic list," Rosen said.
