Police serving a search warrant inside a Kensington home during a narcotics investigation found an 11-year-old boy home alone and locked in a small cell-like chamber in the basement. The boy was found in a locked 8-foot-by-10-foot chamber in a home in the 500 block of East Clearfield Street about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday by members of the Police Department’s Intensive Drug Investigation Squad, police said.

Inside the chamber was a small cushion, which appeared to be used as a mattress, and a bucket containing urine and feces, police said. Police said evidence indicated the boy had been in the chamber about 15 hours before officers arrived. There were indications that the boy was confined as punishment, police said.

A refrigerator in the home was locked, police said, but the boy did not appear to be malnourished. In addition to finding the child, investigators recovered about $44,000 worth of heroin, $5,000 in cash, $700 worth of crack cocaine, a handgun, and a small amount of marijuana, police said.

    “Neighbors reported seeing one of the Reid kids scrambling out of the house right before the raid. Andy Reid could not be reached for a comment.” Hehe. :)
