GALVESTON (April 4, 2013)--A Galveston man and his wife were in custody Thursday in Las Vegas, accused of forcing the man’s 9-year-old son at times to live in a locked wooden box.
The two were held without bond Thursday, charged with unlawful restraint and injury to a child, Clark County, Nev., jail records show.
They were arrested Wednesday after a grand jury indicted them in March.
Galveston police say the boy ran from home away last July.
Child Protective Services officials placed him in foster care.
A police affidavit said the family's home was searched for evidence of possible child pornography.
Investigators located an 8-by-6 foot particleboard box in the laundry room, authorities said.
