Two charged with neglect after child in diaper found wandering Clearwater road

CLEARWATER — Two adults were charged with child neglect after a child in their care was found wandering Sunset Point Road on Saturday evening, police said.

Clearwater officers who responded to neighbors' calls around 6:45 p.m. found John Michael Naccarato, 32, a father of two young children, and his girlfriend, Adria Lynn McAlonen, 30, inside their apartment near Sunset Point Road and Douglas Avenue.

The front door was open; one child was wearing only a diaper in the middle of the busy road and another was found running around the apartment, police said. McAlonen was passed out on her bed. When an officer arrived, she began to laugh. She told police she thought the child was in his room.

The home was in disgusting condition, police said. Old food, filthy diapers, beer bottles and trash were strewn on the floor. Dirty dishes crowded the counters and stove top. A needle McAlonen said she had used two days earlier to inject oxycodone was found uncapped in the kitchen.

Both Naccarato and McAlonen tested positive for oxycodone use. McAlonen also had used alcohol, methamphetamine and cocaine, tests showed.

A Department of Children and Families agent took the children from the apartment. DCF spokespeople could not be reached Sunday. The children's names and ages were not released.

McAlonen, who also used the name Christina Ceek, twice pleaded no contest in Pinellas County court to charges of nudity and simulating sexual activity in a drinking establishment in 2001 and 2002.
