Warren police find three children in unheated, trash strewn home, women charged
Two Warren women have pleaded “not guilty” to child endangering charges after police say their children were found living in an unheated home strewn with trash.
Acting on a tip, officers went to a home on Glenwood Street Northeast on Thursday where they say they were greeted at the door by a woman holding a beer.
Given permission to inspect the home, officers say it had no power or heat and had a dirty diaper, and unknown liquid and other trash on the floor. The kitchen was dirty and “grime smothered on the stove” according to the police report.
Three boys, ages 3, 5, and 15 had no beds, and slept in the same bed as their mother, the report states.
Police charged 26-year-old Sierra Sterns with three counts of child endangering. Forty-five-year-old Sharon Christner is charged with one count of child endangering.
Both face future court dates in Warren Municipal Court.
Children Services was called to the home. The women agreed to take the children to a friend’s home.
