It’s tempting to judge people like Lizabeth Ildefonso for the choices they make, but before you do, I ask you this. Who among us has never driven up to a jail security booth at 10 A.M on a weekday, eyes glassy, nose filled with white powder and tried to order a breakfast sandwich? Most of you? Well then. Ok. Cary on.
Ildefonso, a 44-year-old from Riverhead, New York, allegedly tried to order a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from what she apparently thought was a drive-thru window, according to NBC New York. There was just one problem: She had actually driven up to a security booth at the Riverhead Correctional Facility around 10 a.m. Friday and placed her food request with an officer there, police say.
Deputy Sheriff Yvonne DeCaro told the woman inside the 2007 Nissan that she was at the county jail, and not a fast food establishment. Not to be deterred, Ildefonso “insisted that she really wanted a sandwich,” police told Pix11. During the conversation, police say DeCaro noticed that the hungry driver had glassy eyes, dilated pupils and white powder in one of her nostrils.
She was ordered to perform some sobriety tests which she subsequently failed, but in her defense, I bet some of that shit’s pretty hard when you’re starving.
She was charged with driving without a license and driving while ability impaired by drugs. That second one is a felony.
