East Texas Army Couple Victimized By Brazen Meth Freaks

Faylisa Bailey: Free rent was not enough.
Just before 10 a.m. yesterday, Army wife Holly Burbank got a shocking phone call. No, thankfully, it had nothing to do with her husband Sam -- he is now safely back in Texas after a tour of duty in Iraq.

According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, this call came from one of her relatives in Liberty County, where the couple live in peacetime, in a little house just south of Cleveland.

Seems this relative was driving down the road and noticed that all of the Burbanks' belongings -- clothes, furniture, even their photo albums -- had been trundled out to the front yard, which was full of strangers looking for bargains.

Yep, there was an unauthorized yard sale going on.

It seems the two squatters living there -- parolees Johnny Wayne Bell, 47, and Faylisa Danielle Bailey, 30 -- had decided to do a little redecorating, and the rightful owners' stuff was in the way. So they just decided to take it outside and sell it to passersby on Country Road North 328.

Or maybe they just wanted some more money for meth...

At any rate, the relative slammed on the brakes and confronted the couple, and after what was described as "a verbal altercation," drove off and called Burbank, who in turn called Liberty County police.

Several units from the Liberty County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene. While searching the home, they found hypodermic needles and what was described as a "sizable" quantity of crystal meth. After sending Bailey and Bell to jail, the deputies called out the Cleveland Fire Department, who, amid driving rain, helped the cops haul the Burbanks' soggy belongings back inside.

Bailey has a long arrest record, including multiple counts of theft, credit card fraud and forgery. She also has apparently lost custody of her two children.

"Im missing so much of my kids life," she posted on Facebook beneath a picture of the two last August. "im ready to have my family back together."

This is not the way to go about it, Faylisa.

 This mall is perfect for both shopping and to go for a drink and then go to the movies. It has a Plaza where they usually put great attractions for young children. When there are important football games, there is put up a giant screen for people to go there to see it. You can spend a whole day with your family there and not get bored.

This is a pretty sad story actually. These are some sick people,and when I say "sick" I mean mentally ill due to their drug addiction. Unfortunately the addiction gets to a point where it makes people do senseless actions. In their case, their addiction brought them to a point where they actually held a "yard sale", That's pretty BOLD!  Unfortunately they committed a crime which they will be put up to the hands of justice and then who knows from there...

paying for these losers slow train wreck of a life is just a waste. I HATE junkies. selling someone else's life away for drug money while they are away trying to fight for our country? how many times can you possibly try and fuck someone over? Screw the law handling her again for the umpteenth time - take them in some abandoned parking lot an just shoot them in the head and let the seagulls clean up.

I hope those squatters have a lifetime of misery and poor health, and are blacklisted from being in public buildings, including hospitials, colleges, supermarket, military bases, government buildings, and also are forced to live in poverty for the rest of their subhuman lives

These people, I think, cannot really even be called human. To be SO selfish as to sell another's personal belongings - even family photographs - takes a real lack of sense and sensibility (thanks, Jane!) I hope these two are prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and I hope the full extent is a lot!

blacklisting means that people who are blacklisted are not wanted on the property or at a public event. it also can mean that you are banned from being on public and private property, or banned from being at a public or private event.

because they showed no respect for our military families, and they don't appreciate the fact that the military families sacrificed so much to our country by serving in the military, and supporting those who fight for our freedom and our rights. I grew up in a military family.
