Mother Arrested On Child Cruelty After 3-Month-Old Found Near Narcotics

A mother was arrested Monday on felony child cruelty charges after her 3-month-old child was allegedly found near narcotics, officials said.

On Monday around 6 p.m., deputies responded to a call for service on the 17000 block of Danielson Street in Canyon Country, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found “various narcotics within proximity of her child, putting the child at risk,” Arriaga said.

Deputies arrested Evelyn Martinez, 26, from Canyon Country, on felony child cruelty and narcotics charges, as well as a misdemeanor charge of being in possession of drug paraphernalia, Arriaga added.

Martinez was arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s jail with bail set at $60,000, according to arrest records.

  1. Thank God MARTINEZ was arrested before she killed her abused child—Where was the Husband?! Yep, Jake’s Way area!

    • You’ve got to be one of the most hateful, racist individuals on Gods earth.

      • In what way were JoJo’s remarks racist?? If you believe he is one of the most “racist Individuals on Gods earth” you must have an overwhelming amount of evidence to support your comment. Or are you just watering down the meaning of the word like all the other leftists?

  2. M Keister: Glad this doesn’t happen in your Peter Pan World. Telling the truth/facts is a way to know who/what is causing the problems to stop it. Being Pollyanna only sweeps the truth/facts under the rug, excusing only helps bad behaviors! Wake up, not woke up to reality!

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
