On Saturday, January 26, 2019, officers of the Liberal Police Department responded to a 911 hang up call in the 200 block of W. Pancake. Upon their arrival, they learned that a 27 year old female had been involved in a verbal argument with her 34 year old husband. He left the scene prior to officers’ arrival.

While talking to her, the officers noticed that she appeared to under the influence of methamphetamine. The room was in complete disarray. There were three children, ages 5, 3, and 1, in the room with her. The children appeared to be uncared for. A search of the room revealed syringes containing suspected methamphetamine within easy reach of the children. It was also determined that the only food available for the children was a box of club crackers and dry cereal.

All three children were taken into police protective custody and taken to Southwest Medical Center for treatment. It was determined that one of the children tested positive for methamphetamines.

The female was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, aggravated endangering a child and child abuse. The male was later located and arrested as well.
