Jennifer Ann Bond is being held in the Ada County Jail on two counts of felony injury to child after Meridian police say her two young children were left unsupervised in a feces-filled home Wednesday afternoon.
Meridian police were sent to Bonds home in the 2900 block of N. Fieldstone Way, located in the Ustick/Ten Mile roads neighborhood, around 4:30 p.m. to check out a report of a fight.
When officers arrived, they found Bond arguing with some family members. Police later figured out Bond was so intoxicated earlier in the day, before her family members arrived, that she was not supervising her kids, who are 2 and 4 years old, Lt. Scott Colaianni said.
A witness told police they had seen one of the kids running outside naked earlier in the day. Police say they found human feces all over the home in the bathtub, on the floor, and on clothes and dirty dishes and half eaten food inside.
Police also say when family members got to the house, they found Bond in bed and had to revive her because she was intoxicated which was further evidence that the young children were not being supervised and in danger, Colaianni said. That led to the argument in the street and police being called to the home.
Officers detected a strong odor of alcohol coming form Bond and said she had slurred speech and had balance problems, according to reports.
Police declared the two kids to be in imminent danger and placed them in the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
Bond was then arrested and booked into the jail.
Bond will make her initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.
The crime of felony injury to child is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
