    Mother leaves toddler alone while she visits friends

    Tampa, Florida - Hillsborough Sheriff's deputies arrested a 20-year-old Tampa woman after she left her young son alone in her car while she visited with friends.
    Investigators say Ashley Stoneking stopped at an apartment complex in Town N' County to talk with a friend.
    Stoneking reportedly left her 2-year-old son along, strapped in his car seat, while she went inside her friend's apartment.
    A security officer called Sheriff's deputies to the location of the child on Sand Pointe Place.
    Stoneking was charged with child neglect and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on a $7,500 bond.

    Thanks for passing that along. There is far too much of that going on.
    Kudos to that security officer. He was looking for the unusual and found it.
    Enjoy the day,

      We had a spate of this going on at night outside Casinos where it was mostly Asian women who would go gambling for a few hours leaving kids inside a locked car to sleep. It was considered a cultural thing and a poor defence when security officers were breaking windows with maglites with the support of the police to rescue children in cars. New laws came in to make it illegal to:
      (1) be 10 feet away from your unlocked car at any time (including fill ups)
      (2) leaving children unattended in a motor vehicle
      (3) leaving childen in a secured vehicle
      (4) leaving animals inside a locked vehicle.

      Reminds me of a lost child of 2 who was reported missing 1 w/end when I once a store LPM. It amazed me how parents could let a 2 year old boy get behind them on an escalator and wander off. With so many sicko's and kidnappers around I was thinking of the worst and pulled 30 staff to conduct a sweep of the store to check everywhere. The boy had wandered into a managers office and went to sleep in her arms when she held him and then contacted me. 1 of my LPS's broadcasted his thoughts over our radio and I had to turn it off as the parents were within ear shot of me. I agreed but reminded everyone we do not sell family counselling services as well. Parents just grabbed the child and continued shopping - no thank you - no kiss my butt - no nothing.

              Hank: Pass my kudos to the officer involved. Good job.

              I've been involved in two of these. Both times the parents went to jail. First time was an infant on a sunny afternoon. Second time was a 7 YO boy who was looking after a 3 YO girl and a 6 month old boy overnight on a cold February night.

                Children left unattended happens alot at my work due to the play area. I wish we didnt have it but I have no say. People like to treat it like a babysitter. I wish I could call the police but policy says I have to make an effort to find the adult. I like it when others call the police so the adult can have child endangerment charges files against them.

                      It sure was at one time. We (CIS) are making headway.

                          Good going

                          Nice work by the guard. An observation like that can really save lives.

                          Unfortunatly, on the news today, I saw a story about another mother leaving her baby in the car, and the baby died, I believe from heat related causes.

                          This type of thing really gets to me. I am a proud father of 3 young ones, and I know it would kill me if that (or any other deadly thing) happened to one of mine.

                            I am not a father, but it bothers me everytime I hear a story about a child drowning, getting hit by a car or left in a vehicle. It's a shame. We average 4 or 5 child abuse/endangerment cases a week. I get disgusted everytime I see one.

                              That happened in a suburb of Phoenix. The mother forgot to drop her child off at daycare before going to work as a waitress at Hooters. When she got off work and went to her car she realized what she had done. The temp. was about 90 degrees. I amagine the temp in the car was well over 100. Sad story. The child was only 18 months old. I can't understand how a person can forget their child in a vehicle. I know its not on purpose. I think one thing that would help this from happening is being able to put the childs carseat in the front seat. I know they say it is unsafe because of the airbags, but, it would definately cut down on the problem.
