      Police find 5-year-old home alone, locked in Quincy basement

      Tricia Franklin was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint and child endangerment

      A woman is in the Adams County Jail after Quincy Police found her child locked in the basement of their home.

      QPD officers were sent to 2023 Broadway on Sunday evening after a neighbor reported hearing what sounded like a child yelling for help.

      Officers entered the home and found a 5-year-old boy that was home alone and locked in the basement.

      His mother Tricia Franklin was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint and child endangerment.

      The child has been turned over to the Department of Children and Family Services.

      Franklin will have her first court appearance Tuesday.
