Police were called to the Kmart at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday after someone saw the boy sitting inside the car, with all the windows rolled up, crying. When police arrived, they found the car sitting in direct sunlight and the boy sweating in the backseat holding a towel.
The doors were unlocked so the officers were able to get the boy out of the car. He told the officers that his mom left him in the car while she went shopping and had instructed him to get on the floor and cover up with a towel so no one would see him.
Police found Moore inside the Kmart and brought her back to the parking lot so she could retrieve her identification she said was in a small pink bag inside her car. While retrieving her ID, officers allegedly found a pill bottle that contained a variety of pills
She told them that the pills were Adderall, which was prescribed to her, but that they were just a variety of colors. After an officer left the pill bottle on the trunk of the car, Moore reportedly grabbed it and then dumped all of the pills in her mouth.
The officers were able to stop her from swallowing all of the pills, but Moore was able to get some down her gullet and earn her a trip to hospital. She would later tell the officers that she’d swallowed the pills because she didn’t want to get in trouble for having pills in the wrong bottle.
Moore was later discharged from the hospital and then placed in jail on charges of contributing to the depravation of a minor, obstruction of an officer and tampering with evidence. Moore’s son was placed in the custody of an uncle.
