Police find toddler in unheated, trashy hotel room

Posted: Updated:

Police in Indiana have arrested a father after his 3-year-old son was found barefoot in a frigid hotel room littered with hypodermic needles and trash.


Twenty-three-year-old Zachary Frame was being held on neglect charges Friday in Monroe County Jail in Bloomington. A jail officer didn't know if Frame had a lawyer.

WRTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/UKNXF3 ) police arrested Frame Thursday after they found four people trespassing in an unheated, closed section of the University Inn in Bloomington. Police say the temperature in the room was below 20 degrees.

Officers say the child was barefoot and they found used hypodermic needles, discarded food and trash in the hotel room.

The other two adults in the room were not arrested.

Authorities say the child is now with his mother.
