Police: Mother Faces Multiple Charges After Child Found Wandering

Posted: Updated:

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WRIL)-- A woman was arrested Monday evening after police say her child was found wandering.

According to the citation, Middlesboro Police responded to a call on Nutwood Road regarding a possible lost juvenile male. The caller stated that the 6-year-old may have wondered into someone’s home not knowing where his parents were.

An officer took custody of the boy asking him where his mother was supposed to be and he took him to an apartment at Lincoln Homes.

The citation continues to state that the officer made contact with two males at the apartment that stated the boy’s mother was inside. The men allowed the officer to enter, but it appeared the mother had exited the back door.

Another unnamed officer spotted the woman, later identified as Irene Ramsey-Fuller, 37, of Williamsburg, hiding behind Lincoln Homes. Two officers located Ramsey-Fuller and she began to flee on foot from the scene. They were able to apprehend her in a short foot pursuit. The officer states that it was apparent the woman was under the influence of methamphetamine. A search incident to arrest yielded a baggie of suspected methamphetamine found in her pocket.

Neighbors stated the boy had been in the area by himself all day and had almost been struck by cars several times.

Ramsey-Fuller was lodged in the Bell County Detention Center and charged with:

  • First-degree possession of controlled substance– Methamphetamine
  • Endangering the welfare of a minor
  • Second-degree fleeing or evading police (on foot)
  • Resisting arrest
  • Second-degree disorderly conduct 
  • Public intoxication controlled substance – excluding alcohol

She was also served with three bench warrants for child support, shoplifting, speeding, DUI, no operator’s license, and several other traffic violations.
