Local10 A Miami man left his toddler alone in a car after fleeing from a drug bust. Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Bryant Moss, 31, on Monday after detectives witnessed him selling heroin to a man outside a convenience store. Moss first gained the detectives’ attention when he illegally parked his white Mazda in a handicapped spot. After Moss and the child went into the store, they returned to the vehicle where a man, identified as Robert Ippolito, 58, entered the car and sat in the passenger’s seat. The detectives observed Moss and Ippolito making a hand-to-hand narcotics transaction involving several baggies of a light tan powdery substance. When detectives approached the car, Moss opened his door and fled the scene, leaving the 3-year-old child behind in the vehicle. Moss was apprehended a short distance away from the parking lot, while Ippolito admitted to buying $80 of heroin. The child’s mother was notified and the toddler was released into her custody. Moss was charged with delivery of heroin, resisting arrest without violence, possession of cannabis and cited for parking in a handicapped zone. He was also charged with child neglect for knowingly endangering a 3-year-old child by conducting the drug transaction in the presence of a child.
If you decide to bring your toddler with you to a drug deal, and then flee the scene of the crime when the cops come, make sure you bring the toddler with you. That’s responsible parenting 101. Plus toddlers are easily traceable, and if you leave toddler at a crime scene, it’s only a matter of time before cops connect the dots and arrest the parent. This toddler caused his father to get arrested, but also snitched on Elmo and Big Bird, and you know what happens to snitches in preschool. I’m glad to see Florida parents are setting such good examples for their children.
The rule is no child left behind!
Of course this happened in Florida:
