A woman with a small child, living in an apartment in the 300-block of Pratt, was arrested Tuesday for what deputies described as Child Abuse, Child Neglect and Possession of dangerous drugs.
Deputies said they obtained a search warrant to enter Karen Harral’s apartment where they found Harral and her small child along with methamphetamine and devices to inhale drug powder into her nose. Deputies say some of those drugs were located in a closet well within reach of her young son.
Harral was arrested not only for an original charge of burglary but also for Child Neglect and Abuse and possession of illegal drugs. She was lodged in the Carson City Jail – her son placed presumably in protective custody or with a trusted family member.
