In Laredo, a woman is arrested after allegedly leaving her child unattended.
36-year-old Veronica Ishel Guajardo is behind bars after police found her three-year-old daughter by a business located on the 100 block of Hillside Road. The employee said the child had entered the business on two different occasions by herself. Officers spoke with the child who led officers to an apartment complex located at the 100 block of Aurora street. Inside, officers found the child’s mother asleep.
“Once the officers were speaking to the mother and she was responsive she had a strong odor of alcohol coming from her person and she seemed disoriented according to the officer’s report.”
Guajardo is facing charges of abandonment and endangering a child.
