On Thursday, June 25, 2020, at about 5:44 p.m., Grant County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to MM 28 on Highway 15 in reference to a caller advising that three kids were walking on the side of the road. Caller told deputies that the kids stated to him and his wife that their mother was driving reckless because she was intoxicated and they told her to stop because of her driving, so she pulled over and they began to walk.
When deputies made contact with the children, according to a police report, they said they were from Mescalero, NM, and came to camp at Lake Roberts. The children stated they were only here for the weekend and didn't have family here.
