So a 5 month old was allegedly left sleeping in the car whilst his mother went inside to pick up her other child up from daycare.
The theft was found with the car and arrested, but the baby was not found. Eventually he was found unharmed.
The driver of the stolen car was arrested and refused bail.
The mother was not arrested. So clearly common sense by the police prevailed.
I don't condone leaving a baby inside a car whilst picking other children from daycare but I do leave my kids in the car at petrol stations, or other occasions where they are always visible. I assume the mum left the keys in car and car running, which is stupid but my point of the thread is that leaving your child in a car might be a blurry line according to the law, but I believe common sense on police behalf has prevailed. The mother was not arrested.
