Two face child endangerment charges
Two Tamaqua residents face child endangerment charges.
Kevin T. Heiser, 40, and Christina M. Brode, 35, of the same address, are charged with endangering the welfare of a child after two incidents.
On Nov. 5, police were dispatched to an area of Arlington Street for a child roaming in the street wearing nothing but a diaper. A second call to police then said the child was at Santander Bank on East Broad Street, just east of the railroad tracks. Information of the child’s residence was given to police at the scene and the child was returned home.
Police were dispatched to the 300 block of Hazle Street on Nov. 15 for the same incident; a child roaming the streets with nothing but a diaper. Police were able to locate a few witnesses. Police noted that the temperature at the time of the second incident was 24 degrees.
