Cops: Woman leaves child alone while buying booze
Charlene Waters, 30, 2601 Belford Ave., was cited on suspicion of child abuse by neglect after she allegedly left her child alone and went to a liquor store to purchase alcohol Thursday, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.
The child’s age and gender were deleted in the summons released Saturday by police.
The summons said follow-up investigation showed the home’s interior was “very dirty,” with old food on floors and a coffee table, along with numerous empty alcohol containers.
Mesa County Child Protective Services has an open case involving Waters for a prior abuse and neglect incident, according to the summons. Officers learned that Waters earlier in the day had contacted the office manager of her apartment complex because she didn’t know the whereabouts of her child.
