Sergeant James Reed of Omaha was on routine patrol of an apartment complex on September 17th at approximately 3:15 a.m. when he observed a vehicle illegally parked. As he approached the vehicle he observed a male subject sleeping in the front seat. Contact was made and Sgt. Reed quickly determined that the driver was not a tenant of the property. While conversing with the driver, Sgt. Reed observed a small child in the back seat sleeping. The driver stated that the child was a "friends kid." Sgt. Reed then contacted Omaha Police who responded within minutes as there was already an Amber Alert for this child. The male party was quickly taken into custody and charged with carrying a concealed weapon, drug paraphernalia, child abuse/neglect, possession of marijuana and meth. The child was safely returned to her mother.
Great job Sgt. Reed!
