Reckless conduct was reported near Neese Mobile Home Park on Willis Glenn Road recently after a small child was found on the side of the road by a passerby.
Officer Joshua Smith went to the scene and talked with the child, who pointed to the nearby mobile home park when asked where she lives. A man cutting grass in the park told Smith which home was hers. Smith found the child’s aunt and father in the mobile home in separate rooms, asleep, along with several other children of various ages. Both stated they were unaware that the child had left the residence. The man was asked to stop frightening the child when he told the child that she had gotten daddy in trouble. DFCS was informed of the incident for follow up.
