On August 14, 2017, deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to a found child call, in the 14400 block of Chamberlain Drive.
The reporting party told deputies she heard a child crying and when she went outside she saw a toddler standing in the front yard, across the street from her home. The reporting party knocked on the door to the home but no one answered.
When deputies arrived they were able to make entry to the house and located the one-year-old girl’s mother asleep in an upstairs bedroom. Also in the bed, where the mother and child slept, deputies located narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
