PASADENA, Md. (AP) — A woman claiming to be the mother of an infant discovered in a car seat carrier on the side of the road in Maryland has been arrested.
Officials with the Anne Arundel County Police Department say Sandra Clara McClary is charged with child neglect and reckless endangerment after her three-month-old daughter was found just before midnight in a scuffed carrier in Pasadena after a resident called to report the abandoned child.
Authorities say the scuff marks lead them to believe the carrier may have fallen from a moving car.
Authorities say McClary left the baby on the side of the road.
The baby was taken to a local hospital after she was discovered and is in good condition. She is in the custody of the Department of Child Protective Services.
