'This is the police. We have your kids.' Woman charged with child desertion
BATON ROUGE – Police say a Baton Rouge woman was charged with child desertion after leaving three small children under the age of 9 unattended at her home.
According to arrest records, Baton Rouge Police were dispatched to a home on Byron Street Wednesday night in reference to an alarm. At the scene, police found three small children in the home.
Police say the children told officers that 28-year-old Angelica Minyette Causey left the home around 11 p.m. with two other women. Officers tried to contact Causey by phone but she did not answer.
BRPD officers then transported the children to the 4th District where they were provided food and drinks.
An hour later, police say Causey sent a text message to the officer’s phone with, “Who dis MzJ (heart face) 2 U Biiiih (wink face) (kiss face)”
The officer then replied with, “This is the police. We have your kids. Call BRPD 4th District.”
Police say Causey contacted police around 2:25 a.m. and asked police where her kids were. Around 2:35 a.m. she arrived at the 4th district and was placed under arrest.
Investigators say Causey stated she left the children inside the home to move items from her apartment with her friends.
Causey was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on child desertion charges.
