SEBASTIAN, Fla. (WFLA) — A Florida woman was arrested Friday after leaving her 27-day-old baby in a car while she played in an arcade, according to deputies.

The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office said Bionca Kimyata Lockett, 32, of Sebastian left the infant in the car for around an hour and 45 minutes while she gambled at the Sebastian Square plaza.

The baby was found to be malnourished, dehydrated, had visibly dry skin and chapped lips. According to deputies at the scene, the baby was also poorly cleaned.

The sheriff’s said the mother did not have any formula for the child so a responding deputy had to buy formula for the child.

Locket was charges with two counts of felony child neglect.
