Police arrested a mom from Baton Rouge for abandoning her 3-year-old son in the parking lot of a casino.

Officials say Erica Williams, 27, of 4709 Osborne St, admitted to leaving her son in the car. Williams told police she left the keys in the ignition with the air condition on and the windows rolled up. Williams went inside the casino and when she came back outside nearly and hour and a half later her son was no longer in the vehicle, according to police.

Someone at the casino found the toddler wandering around in the parking lot and took him to Boomtown Casino Security officers.

The child was put in the custody of his grandmother. Williams was booked on one count of child abandonment.
