Mother, grandfather arrested after child found unattended

A mother and grandfather were arrested today after they allegedly allowed a 2-year-old child to wander unattended in a Citrus Heights apartment complex.

Police were called to the Autumn Ridge Apartments at 6011 Shadow Lane about 11:30 a.m. regarding a report that a 2-year-old boy had been found unattended in the apartment complex roadway. A citizen who located the youngster took him to the apartment complex office, where he was later reunited with his mother, Alexandria Gualdarama (photo, left), 21, and grandfather, Warren Gualdarama (photo, right), 43, according to a Citrus Heights Police Department news release.

Police officers conducted an investigation to determine whether child neglect played a role in the incident. They concluded that the youngster had been left unsupervised while his mother and grandfather were in a back bedroom of their apartment smoking marijuana, according to the news release.Gualdarama.Alexadria.JPGGualdarama.Warren.JPG
