Officers are now trying to get a warrant so that they can arrest the mother for child endangerment.
Police say they found what appeared to be an abandoned crashed car and discovered the child inside. The crack pipe was discovered after police broke into the car shortly after midnight to get the boy. According to officers on the scene, the car had damage to the front bumper area.
A woman claiming to be the boy’s aunt sauntered over to the scene after officers arrived and said she and the boy’s mother left him because the car ran out of gas. The aunt said she went to get gas and the boy’s mother went off in search of more drugs.
The boy was later taken to the hospital and released into the care of his father.
The boy’s aunt was questioned and released, and police are still searching for the mother.
