Meet Kristina Maronie of Atlanta. Kristina was arrested yesterday evening (April 13, 2010) when she got home from working her overnight job and called 911 to report her 4-year old son missing.
What she didn’t know was that the young boy had already been found wandering around her southwest Atlanta apartment complex, after she left the child home ALONE while she went to work!
According to the AJC, a resident of the Woods at Glenrose apartments on Mt. Zion Road called police about 2:30 a.m. after noticing the boy walking around shoeless and wearing only boxer shorts.
“We tried to get him to show us where he lived,” Atlanta police Capt. Van Hobbs said.
“He wanted a piggyback ride, so one of my sergeants put him on his shoulders and said he would give him a piggyback ride if he showed us where he lived and carried him about four blocks and the house he showed us wasn’t the house,” Hobbs told the AJC before daybreak.
“So, he got his piggyback ride, and we don’t know where he lives.”
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., the mystery was solved when a woman from the same complex called police to report that her son was missing.
Apparently 30-year-old Kristina Maronie had left the child at home overnight while she went to work!
“The mother came home, noticed the child missing and called police,” Jones said.
Maronie was then arrested and charged with reckless conduct and taken to the Fulton County Jail where she smiled for the mugshot above, while her son was placed in the custody of the Division of Family and Children Services.
