Miami, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Marlene Mieses, a 24-year-old Florida woman was jailed Monday after she allegedly left her 11-month-old son alone in a motel room to sell food stamps.
According to police, officers were dispatched to the Seven Seas Motel in Miami after the housekeeping staff found an 11-month-old baby abandoned in a motel room.
Investigators say the baby was found in a playpen with blankets and a bottle of milk. Mieses arrived back at the motel about two-and-a-half hours after the child was found alone.
Mieses told detectives that she left the child behind to sell food stamps in North Miami. She stated that she didn't bring the baby with her because it was raining and she didn't want the baby to get wet.
Mieses is currently pregnant with another child, police say.
Mieses was booked into jail and charged with child neglect. Child welfare workers placed the child into protective custody.
