GILLETT, Pa. (WETM) – Two parents are facing drug charges after they were found asleep while their 4-year-old son wandered into a neighbor’s home.
According to Pennsylvania State Police, a neighbor on Berwick Turnpike came home to find their front door open. Inside they found their neighbor’s son wearing only a diaper.
When police searched for the child’s parents they found Tapanga McCartney and Thomas Raymond sleeping with a plastic bag of suspected methamphetamine and a glass smoking device near the bed.
A one-year-old girl was also found sleeping in a crib nearby.
State Police say McCartney and Raymond “were unaware of their son’s whereabouts” and that additional drug paraphernalia was found in the home.
Bradford County Children & Youth Services took custody of the two children and Raymond and McCartney were taken into custody.
