Police arrest two after small child is found walking near street

ROBINSON -

UPDATE: On December 5, a McLennan County Grand Jury returned indictments against Keith A. Richards and Crissina Dawn Luecke on two counts of endangering a child.

Two young children were placed in CPS custody on Monday, following the arrest of a man and a woman who police say left the two children unattended in Robinson.

Crissina Dawn Luecke and Keith A. Richards were arrested and charged with endangering or abandoning a child after a 2-year-old boy was found walking down the road with a soiled diaper.

Robinson PD got a call about 9:30 a.m. Monday morning from a man who had been driving in the 1300 block of Rocket Rd. and found a 2-year-old boy walking down the road.

Police arrived on the scene and began looking for where the boy lived. A nearby resident pointed the police to a possible house. As officers approached the house, they heard a baby crying inside a gated yard.

They entered the yard and found a 1-year-old girl with a soiled diaper. Initially, officers did not get a response from the house, but they were eventually able to make contact with Keith A. Richards, who was the uncle of the children.

The children had recently been placed in the custody of their grandfather. The grandfather was taking a 3rd child to school and left the two young children in the care of Richards. Police also found Luecke in the house and both were taken in custody.

Luecke was also named in a parole violation warrant and she is also being held on that.  Richards was additionally charged with hindering apprehension for trying to hide Luecke's identity from police, so she would not be picked up on the warrant.
