A Carson City area woman has been arrested for leaving her three little boys inside the family car while she went inside a casino to gamble. And it wasn’t just for five or ten minutes. Two of the boys eventually got out of their car and started hanging out at an entry door to the casino.
The casino surveillance cameras caught the boys waiting for their mother. The boys were quickly rounded up by casino and law enforcement officers. It didn’t take long for the two boys and their mother to be re-united. Both the boys, and a third child in their car’s back seat, who was sweating profusely according to law enforcement, went with officers and a family services agent while the mother was handcuffed and taken to jail.
It might be time to pass a state law to prevent these kinds of potentially dangerous situations by requiring casino personnel to be constantly on the look-out for children marooned in vehicles while mom and/or dad are inside casinos pulling handles.
