BISMARCK, N.D. — A Bismarck man and woman are facing felony charges for allegedly passing out drunk in a van and leaving two toddlers unattended.

Officers found the 1-year-old boy and 2-year-old boy playing alone Thursday. Police said the children were in overly dirty diapers and one was covered with rotten milk.

Officers say they found an open jug of milk in the van, along with food, dirty diapers, a bottle of vodka and an unmarked pill bottle.

Authorities allege 40-year-olds Andrea Addison and Gary Pulido both were drunk and passed out. Addison is the grandmother and caretaker of the two children, who were turned over to Social Services.

Addison and Pulido face felony child neglect charges. Court documents don’t list an attorney for them. A telephone listing for Pulido isn’t in service.
