Natchez mom arrested after children left in car

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Baton Rouge police have arrested a 30-year-old Natchez woman after they found her smoking marijuana in the car with her two young children, then leaving them in the car while she went shopping in Cortana Mall.

Jasmin Washington of Natchez was booked by the Baton Rouge Police Department Sunday with child desertion, contributing to the delinquency of juveniles and possession of schedule I drugs.

An off-duty police officer working security at the mall found the two children, ages 2 and 4, sleeping inside the car.

When security made a page through the mall speaker system, police say Washington walked up to the security officer, smelling of marijuana.
