Child Abuse Charges in Union City

October 10th, 2012 - By Charles Choate

Union City police have arrested a woman on charges of child abuse, involving drugs.

Police reports said 28 year old Miranda Leann Yates, of 520 North First Street, was taken into custody on warrants charging her with Aggravated Child Abuse and Theft over $1,000.

Reports said an investigation began on September 18th, when police took photos of a bedroom used by Yates and her eight-week-old baby, which contained drug paraphernalia on a nightstand.

A drug screen was performed on the baby, which tested positive for methamphetamine.

The report said after learning of her pending arrest, Yates allegedly stole her grandmothers vehicle.

She was arrested early Wednesday morning in Benton County, with the stolen vehicle, and returned to Obion County.
