A Florida mom was busted this week for leaving her 3-year-old daughter alone in a car for hours while she worked at a strip club, police said.
Manouchika Daniels, 23, was charged with child neglect for the Tuesday incident, according to cops.
Police say that someone called 911 at around 2 a.m. Tuesday after Daniels’ child was spotted crying and wandering around the parking lot of the Vegas Cabaret giggle joint in Lauderhill.
The child ultimately led police officers back to a vehicle that wasn’t running and had the back window cracked, according to Lauderhill police Lt. Michael Santiago.
About 30 minutes later Daniels showed up and identified herself to the officers as the child’s mother, authorities said.
“She admitted that she just left the child there briefly while she dropped somebody off, but later in the case we realized that was not the issue,” Santiago said, according to WPLG.
Cops determined that Daniels had left the tot in the car at around 11 p.m. Monday while she worked at the strip club.
“I mean, she could’ve been seriously hurt,” Santiago said of the child. “A 3-year-old is especially vulnerable in this type of situation. You have traffic flow on University Drive and it’s dark.”
Daniels was ordered held without bond and her daughter was taken into protective custody.
