Fostering abuse: It's for the money

Newark woman arrested after foster child found chained to a fan

A New Jersey woman was arrested Wednesday after police found her 12-year-old foster child chained to a fan inside her home, authorities said.

The boy was found in a bedroom at his foster home in Newark by police conducting a wellness check at about 10:10 a.m., according to authorities.

He was tethered to a fan by chains and padlocks, Newark Department of Public Safety said in a Thursday press release.

The foster mother, 66-year-old Wanser Brown, is facing two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

The boy was placed in the custody of the New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency.
