A Cleveland woman was arrested by the Cleveland Police Department last week on multiple drug charges after an officer discovered drug paraphernalia during a welfare check at a Fisher Street apartment.
According to a CPD report, the check was prompted by a call from public housing officials, who told police the front porch at 1850 Fisher St., Apt. 2B was littered with trash, televisions and clothing.
After a man identified as Jason Adams allowed the officer to enter the residence, Obryan Stame was discovered in a bedroom, where a glass bong was sitting on a closet shelf. In addition, the officer discovered several syringes, along with a spoon containing a “dark brown liquid.”
However, the tenant was not home and her three children were being watched by Adams' girlfriend, Jenny Beard.
The tenant, Shonda Perez, 30, arrived a few minutes later.
The officer obtained written consent from Perez to search the apartment. While searching the back bedroom, several syringes were collected, along with approximately one gram of what was believed to be heroin, according to the report.
The report also stated the children were dirty, unclothed and in close proximity to the syringes and drugs. In addition, the youngest child’s face and chest were covered by a rash, according to the report.
The children were placed in custody of family members by the Department of Children’s Services.
Additional drug charges are pending until the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation identifies the substance as heroin. For officer safety, the brown substance in the spoon was not collected by the officer.
Perez is charged with four counts of drugs/narcotics and equipment and one count of drugs/narcotics.
