* Deputy McKee responded to the Lake Side Motel, 18850 State Route 60, Waterford, to conduct a welfare check on a juvenile left there overnight. Employees explained the day prior, Roxane Spicer and Cyril C. Pletcher III had rented a motel room. Spicer and Pletcher left yesterday afternoon and it was believed that they had not returned. Spicer and Pletcher left their juvenile son in the room, by himself, with a loaded .22 caliber rifle. Employees stated the child was walking in the parking lot with the rifle and even tried to bring the rifle into the office, however office personnel hurried and locked the door due to concerned about what the juvenile was planning to do with the rifle. Employees allowed Deputy McKee into the room to check on the child, however he was not present. Deputy McKee did view a .22 caliber rifle in plain sight, and it was found to be loaded. The child was then located walking in Beverly. The child gave deputies information on being left in the room and stated the parents allowed him to keep the rifle with him, loaded. The child further stated that the parents stayed at another motel/hotel last evening (which was confirmed) while he stayed in Beverly. Contact was eventually made with Spicer and she came to the Sheriff’s Office to meet with deputies. Roxane Rae Spicer, 40, last known address 801 Ferry Street, Beverly, was placed under arrest for endangering children and improperly furnish firearms to a minor.
