 Police: Man sold crack as he babysat

TAMPA - A 27-year-old Tampa man is in the county jail on drug possession and aggravated child abuse charges after police officers say he sold crack cocaine to one of their informants while caring for his girlfriend's three young children Wednesday night.

Bobby Lamar Burt, 10939 Brittany Lane, Apt. 66, was arrested at 8:45 p.m. on charges of cocaine and marijuana possession, delivery of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and aggravated child abuse.

According to a Tampa police report, at 8:45 p.m. Burt agreed to meet the informant at the corner of N Boulevard and E Linebaugh Avenue to deliver $120 worth of crack cocaine.

Burt arrived in a 1974 green four-door Chevrolet, with three children between 3 and 7 years old inside, police said. The children were not in child seats or seat belts, according to the police report.

After Burt gave the informant the drugs, police officers followed the Chevrolet to 109th Avenue and N Ashley Street, where they felt they could arrest him without endangering the children, investigators said.

Officers arrested Burt, then turned the children over to their mother, Alicia Darlington. Police also reported the incident to a child abuse hotline.
