Proud Parents: In The News

A Fishers mother was arrested Tuesday after two toddlers were found wandering their neighborhood alone.

Sarah Martin, 23, faces neglect of a dependent, possession of a controlled substance and possession of Marijuana charges.

According to officials, a neighbor called police to the 13100 block of Knollwood place near 131st Street and Harrison Parkway around 10:15 a.m. The neighbor said the children were walking around with just t-shirts on so she took them into her home and put diapers on them.

Police said the children were too young to tell them where they lived. After an hour of searching, police were able to find a neighbor who recognized the children.

When police got to the home on Buffett Parkway, which is several blocks away from where the children were found, they found marijuana and Adderall inside the home. Martin admitted to police that she had smoked the marijuana and swallowed the Adderall and simply fell asleep while watching her two children. She said she didn’t know the children had left the home until officers woke her.

Martin is being held in the Hamilton County Jail.

The children are now staying with a relative.

  11. @ Kevin: When you’re actually prescribed Adderol for ADHD it has a reverse effect. This lady looks like the poster child for Attention Deficit.

  15. @ thrillho: she probably didn’t have a script for it, or else they wouldn’t have charged her with possession. And even so, adderal is a stimulate and I’ve never ever heard of anybody falling asleep after taking it.

  17. Ashleigh, I agree that she probably didn’t have a perscription, but if she did have ADHD it would calm her down. The marijuana was probably responsible for the sleepiness though.

  19. Fishers is a typical upper middle class, young professionals suburb of Indianapolis. Money doesn’t buy common sense.

  25. My friend and her siblings were taken away from their single mother about a year ago for kind of the same thing. Her mom wasn’t home while their 3-4 year old brother was wandering the streets. -.-
