Plymouth Woman Arrested After Incident with Division of Family Services

A Plymouth woman was arrested Sunday after she denied law enforcement the ability to enter her home to check on the welfare of children.

Representatives of the Division of Family Services called police to conduct a welfare check and when officers arrived at the home in the 900 block of West Jefferson Street a man come out of the home and reportedly would not allow the officers to check the children.

DFS told police that they would arrive with a court order to detain the children and, when they arrived on scene, the residents would not answer the door. Entry was made into the home where six children were found hiding.

Ramona Garcia was arrested on preliminary charges of Battery, Interfering, Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Law Enforcement.
