Baltimore Woman Charged for Abandoning Baby by Roadside

In a rather alarming revelation by the Anne Arundel County police, a six-week old baby was found abandoned by the side of a road in Maryland. The police alleged that it was the baby’s mother who was responsible for this utter negligence.

The baby was found on Druid Hill Avenue in Pasadena, about 20 miles south of Baltimore, around 11.45pm on Saturday. A passerby, Bishop Raymond Showell, noticed the baby and alerted the police. The baby was found in a scuffed car seat and soon after the police grabbed the baby, they posted a picture of the child on social media.

The baby’s mother, 26-year-old Sandra Clara McClary of Baltimore, approached the police on Sunday morning, claiming to be the child’s mother. She said that her husband was supposed to have the child and she did not know where the child or the father were.

However, investigation revealed that McClary had herself removed the baby from her car and left her on the side of the road. Even her vehicle happened to cross the area around the time the child was abandoned. This was established through a tag that matched her car.

Further inquiry revealed the reason behind McClary’s eccentric behaviour. She left the baby after a domestic dispute with the baby’s father. McClary was charged with child neglect and reckless endangerment on Sunday. She is being held on $500,000 bail. Lt T.J. Smith from Anne Arundel County Police Department, said, “You can't leave a two or three month old on the side of the road unattended. Period. End of story”.

As per reports, the baby is in a good condition.
