SUSPECT: Kaia Rolle, 6-Years-old
CHARGES: Misdemeanor assault
THE DETAILS: A school resource officer, Dennis Turner, is under investigation after reports emerged that he arrested and handcuffed a six-year-old child. According to police, Turner learned that the child had kicked a teacher at school. He veered far away from standard procedure and decided to apprehend the youngster and transport her to a juvenile facility. The child has been formally charged with a misdemeanor, but her parents and the community are in shock. Police later confirmed that the arrest was conducted in violation of standard procedure because minors under 12 can’t be arrested without a supervisor’s permission. The school resource officer didn’t follow this protocol.

THE DETAILS: Police in Connecticut were disturbed when they received reports of a two-year-old baby playing around on a dangerous rooftop. Authorities rushed out to the residence where they found the toddler wandering about the roof. One officer distracted the child while another forced his way into the home to get access to the roof. They rescued the baby and then turned their attention onto the two adults present inside the home. Both claimed to be sleeping when the incident occurred. They were both arrested on the spot, but authorities were also concerned about the state of the home. They described the living conditions as “deplorable.” Upon further inspection, the house was condemned by city officials.
SUSPECT: Quincy Thorp
DATE OF ARREST: September 26
THE DETAILS: An armored vehicle, allegedly belonging to the FBI, transported eight duffle bags full of cash to JFK international airport. The FBI expected all the bags to be transported by air to Miami, but one of the bags never showed up. FBI agents confirmed that the bag had well over $250,000 in cash. Immediately, officials began reviewing video footage and they saw the missing bag being placed onto a different vehicle rather than aboard the flight like the other seven bags. After further investigating, officers suspect a Delta Airlines employee, Quincy Thorp, took the bag. He has been arrested, but he claims to be innocent. The money has not yet been recovered.
SUSPECTS: Jose and Ursula Juarez
CHARGES: Suspicion of murder
DATE OF ARREST: September 26
THE DETAILS: Investigators, family members and the community have plenty of questions after a 4-year-old perished suspiciously under the care of allegedly abusive parents. According to police, the child was discovered at the bottom of a family pool on July 5th. An autopsy unveiled curious injuries that were inconsistent with a drowning death. Instead, the injuries appeared to potentially expose an abusive past. A coroner ultimately ruled the death a homicide. Investigators arrested the boy’s parents and then searched their home for evidence. The child’s great grandmother has hired an attorney who made a statement about the arrest. The attorney indicated that the Children and Family Services has “blood on its hands” because they failed to take the child away from the parents after a court order was issued one month before the death.
