Pittsfield man accused of abusing elderly mother while supporting drug habit

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- A Pittsfield man is behind bars accused of using money for his elderly mothers' medical care to support a drug habit.

According to court documents, Christopher Harrison kept his mother living in filthy conditions with little food and no medical care all while threatening his family to stay away.

Police reports say garbage, razors, used needles, and dirty adult diapers littered the floor and there was no indication of the last time the woman had food or water.

He's also accused of stealing his mother's social security checks and needles for her diabetes treatment to aid his drug addictions.

Harrison is in the Berkshire County Jail on $50,000 bond.
