Prosecutors say mom kept unsanitary home, sold meth in front of daughter 

You’d get pooped tidying up this home.

Authorities say a police raid on a drug den in San Carlos led to a dirty revelation: a mom allegedly dealt methamphetamine in front of her 5-year-old daughter and forced the child to live in a home filled with dog feces.

Sarah Jane DiLorenzo, 25, is facing drug and child endangerment charges following an undercover operation by the San Mateo Narcotics Task Force, prosecutors said.

An informant purchased drugs from DiLorenzo on four occasions, they said.

Last week, a narcotics task force raid on DiLorenzo’s pad showed the child lived in “an extremely unsanitary condition,” with “dog feces throughout” the home, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Agents also found methamphetamine, drug packaging material, pay-owe sheets and other sales paraphernalia, Wagstaffe said.

DiLorenzo’s alleged supplier, Edward Joseph Alves, 47, was also arrested in the sting.

The accused mom is set to appear in Redwood City Felony Court on Wednesday for superior court review. She remains in custody on $160,000 bail.

Alves posted an $80,000 bail bond the day after his arrest. His first court appearance is set for July 5.
