Mother charged with child desertion
An Annapolis woman was charged with deserting her nine-month-old daughter after she left the child in the front yard of a friend's home, county police reported yesterday.
Police said Laura Marie Weibley, 20, of the 500 block of Bellerive Drive in Dorado Hills, left her daughter in her car seat at a home in the 1600 block of Ruxton Road at 5:50 p.m.
She told Kenny Smith, the man who lives there, that she needed to leave the child with him but did not say why, where she was going or how long she would be gone, the police report said.
Mr. Smith brought the child to his sister's home on nearby Oriole Road.
Tracy Lynn Smith, his sister, called police and said she could not take care of the child because she had children of her own to watch.
She told officers she had been a baby sitter for the girl before, and Ms. Weibley had dropped her daughter off before without pTC saying where she was going or when she would return.
Officers bought the child to Southern District station and called the county Department of Social Services, the police report said.
A case worker said this has been a problem with Ms. Weibley in the past and that the department was working with her.
The child was placed in a foster home.
