Nautica Harris

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Officers located two young children in a home described by Metro Police as "deplorable" during a welfare check.

During the check on Sunday at an apartment at 830 Glastonbury Road, officers contacted 22-year-old Nautica A. Harris and her two children, 2- and 4-years-old.

According to the police report, the apartment had a potent stench with flies on the walls, decaying and rotting meat throughout, and water clogging the sinks.

The 2-year-old child was only wearing a shirt at the time. A neighbor gave the officers a diaper to clothe the child.

Officers discovered a rash in the center of the 2-year-old's chest and an unknown dried substance in their hair. Both of the children were taken to Vanderbilt Pediatrics for a precautionary examination. DCS took custody of both from there.

Harris was taken into custody and booked into the Davidson County Jail. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
