Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: Two Iredell County parents were arrested on Saturday, March 17 when their three year old child was found wandering around nude in Harmony Meadows Mobile Home Park off of Harmony Highway.
Deputies arrived within minutes of receiving the call and found the child had been taken into the residence of the reporting person. Deputies remained on the scene while waiting for Iredell County Department of Social Service to arrive and observed no movement in or around the parent’s residence.
The responding deputies were finally able to make contact with Devon Erin Dilorenzo who stated she had been asleep and did not realize her child was outside the residence. David Velazquez Castillo was also asleep inside the residence at the time.
Iredell County Department of Social Services removed the child from residence for safe keeping.
Devon Erin Dilorenzo and David Velazquez Castillo were transported to the Iredell County Detention Center where they were each charged with one count of Misdemeanor Child Abuse. Magistrate S. Watkins placed each suspect under a 15,000.00 dollars secured bond.
