JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown mother was arrested Thursday afternoon after officers found her child wandering alone in the area of Burtch Street.

Jamestown Police say Linda Troutman, 27, is charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Officers were first advised by residents in the area that a toddler was found wandering along for at least an hour.

Police were able to locate the child’s mother inside a nearby residence. While speaking with Troutman officers observed deplorable living conditions inside the house.

It is alleged that Troutman’s house was littered with dog feces, soiled diapers, food and other garbage.

Police said Troutman was taken into custody and transported to Jamestown City Jail.

It is unclear if the child, or other children in the house, were taken into protective custody.
