Clarksburg Police have arrested the mother of a 4-year-old boy and the boy's grandmother and charged them with child neglect.
Police said Taylor Goots, and her mother Andrea Goots, are each charged with gross child neglect with risk of serious injury.
Police said a 4-year-old boy managed to walk out of the grandmother's home undetected and ended up in the middle of South Chestnut Street near Horner Avenue in Clarksburg.
Police said a passing motorist found the boy wandering alone on South Chestnut Street around 11:30 a.m. A magistrate judge denied Taylor Goots bail at the time because she was under the influence of a substance.
