Mom Arrested After Toddler Son Found Wandering Alone at Night With No Diaper or Pants
A 22-year-old Oklahoma mother was arrested after her toddler son was found wandering a street alone, wearing only a football jersey, police said.
Casandra Jones was unconscious when Tulsa police officers found her in a travel trailer, authorities said.
The officers were responding to a call from neighbors, who reported seeing a 2-year-old boy with no pants and no diaper walking alone along a road at 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
They showed police where the woman lived — in a travel trailer behind a house in the neighborhood.
An officer found the trailer door open, and a woman passed out on a mattress cluttered with tools and clothes, Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Casey Roebuck told InsideEdition.com Monday.
The trailer had no electricity, no running water and no food, Roebuck said.
It took a while to rouse the woman, who “had no idea that her child was missing,” Roebuck said.
The child has been placed in the care of social services, she said. Jones is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail at the Tulsa County Jail. She has not entered a plea.
A child welfare hearing is scheduled for October 11, according to online records.
