Dothan, AL — Kelly Laster, 29, has been charged with attempted murder after police say she left her 3-year old son in a storm drain and went shopping.

According to police, sometime between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, Laster placed the toddler in a storm drain approximately 150 yards from the home where she lives with her parents. She and her 5-year-old daughter then walked off to go shopping at WalMart.

Police were notified when Laster’s father woke and found the three missing. Laster and her daughter were found in the store a short time later and the search for the missing toddler began.

The police, grandpa and the neighbors scoured the neighborhood with flashlights for the next 45 minutes. It was grandpa who found the kiddo in the drain.

“I found the little boy myself and pulled him out,” said Homer Laster. “I checked the drain, I woke him up and pulled him out.”

Except for a few scratches, the boy is reported to be in good condition.

Laster was booked on charges of attempted murder and was ordered held on $200,000 bond. If there is a motive behind the abandonment, police haven’t released it yet. Sleepwalking, perhaps?

Homer Laster said in a telephone interview that his daughter is a good person, and he hopes the charges against her are dismissed.

Thank ya, Sister Iroz!
