Aug. 5– An infant is in the care of the Department of Children’s Services after being abandoned at a Savannah convenience store, authorities say.
The mother and another woman believed to have been doing drugs together are facing charges in connection with the incident.
At about 8:45 this morning, Savannah police were dispatched to Cedar Pantry on Florence Road. A store employee was caring for a 10-month-old baby that had been left outside in a stroller, said police Investigator T.J. Barker.
“Sad – that’s just terrible,” he said. “She looked like a normal, healthy infant. Pretty little girl.”
A customer had spotted the stroller and pushed it with the baby into the store, he said.
