A mom is accused of ditching her 3-year-old, leaving the toddler alone inside a car while she shopped inside a Target.
On May 29, the Harris County Constable Precinct 4 in Texas responded to the store for a report of a child being left in a vehicle.
When deputies arrived, they found the 3-year-old child inside the running vehicle, according to police. While officers were there, the child’s mother — identified as Marcie Taylor — exited the store.
She told deputies she had been in the store for five minutes.
But investigators determined Taylor had been in the Target for more than 30 minutes, according to police.
Taylor was charged with child endangerment and booked into jail. Her bond was set at $25,000.
