Three Stooges Leave Kids Roasting In Hot Car For Hours, Two Of The Adults Found At Nearby Bar

Springfield, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) - Mackisha Johnson, 25, Shacona Johnson, and Christopher M. Jones, 38, were jailed after they allegedly left 10 children in an SUV and 101 degree heat while they sat at a bar.

According to Springfield County Police, officers were called after a witness spotted several children locked inside a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe, without any apparent supervision.

When officers arrived, they found 10 children, ages 7 months to 11 years, abandoned inside the hot vehicle while the heat index that day was 101 degrees.

Investigators say Mackisha Johnson, the mother of six of the children was found at a nearby bar with Jones. Shacona Johnson, the mother of the other four children, was not at the scene. She called authorities the next day and explained that she was at a baby shower, and had left her children at the bar when she was picked up by a friend.

Surveillance video shows Jones coming out of the bar several times to check on the children. However, it is unclear how he knew them or the women. As soon as the children were let out of the car by authorities, they were given pizza and water from the bar, and were let in to use the bathroom. They all were uninjured, and are now in state custody.

Mackisha Johnson and Christopher Jones were booked into jail and charged with child endangerment. Johnson also has a pending felony charge for distribution of a controlled substance in Green County Jail and a pending misdemeanor case for passing a fraudulent check. Both suspects are being held in lieu of $2,500 bond each.

Shacona Johnson is also facing child endangerment charges. She also has an outstanding warrant on a misdemeanor charge.
