Child's Call To 911 Leads To Couple's Arrest

By  | 

A 7-year-old's prank call to 911 led to the arrest of a Reno couple after authorities found three children alone in a filthy apartment.

Reno Police Lt. Ron Holladay said officers were sent to the residence Wednesday after dispatchers received the call and could not contact an adult.

He said the older boy and his 4- and 5-year old siblings were alone and the apartment was littered with dog feces.

Scott Burrows, 33, and Luwana Uribes, 25, were arrested when they arrived home with a 7-month-old baby, Holladay said.

All four children were placed with child protective services.
