A Vian woman was charged in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw, with felony charges of child neglect, and misdemeanor charges of possession of controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
On August 10 Monica Cremona, 27, called Vian police to her residence three times within one hour reporting that her boyfriend was trying to break in. Upon hearing the third call a Sequoyah County Deputy met with the Vian police officer and spoke to Cremona. She stated that her boyfriend and his brother had been trying to break in and she wasn't sure if anyone else was in the home. The deputy asked for permission to search the home and Cremona said yes.
During the search the officers found a partial burned joint, items that field tested to be marijuana and methamphetamines, a marijuana grinder, and a smoking device. Cremona also confessed to having snorted meth "a couple of hours prior".
The officers contacted DHS who arrived and made arrangements for the care of four minor children that were in the home ranging in age from 2-6 years of age.
Cremona entered a not guilty plea to the charges on August 15 in district court. She was released on a $10,000 bond. Her next court appearance is slated for Oct. 3 on Judge Kyle Waters felony disposition docket.
