Mom Made Kid Hide Inside Car In 90 Degree Heat While She ShoppedCovington, GA - Police arrested Mary Amber Moore after the 32-year-old woman went inside a Kmart to do some shopping and left her 5-year-old son outside in a car in the 90 degree heat.

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.

    they should have let her eat the whole bottle!

  • Kittyskyfish

    She’s 32? That’s a hard 32, for sure. Rainbow-colored “Adderall” pills aren’t helping her. She needs to get her head back on straight as there is no f***ing reason to keep your kid closed up in a roasting car while you shop.

  • Donnakelli Maddencox

    was she TRYING to kill him?

  • Castina M. Ortiz

    That thing is 32????

  • Evan

    just take the tyke into the store with you – you stupid ugly bitch!

  • Sandra Sedillo

    they should have held her down and helped her eat the whole bottle.

  • Kappy Nichols

    To hell with her. Thank the stars that someone noticed this little boy. Death in a hot vehicle can come on so quickly. :(

  • Lauren Griffiths

    She looks a little like someone left her sandwiched in a sunbed a tad too long.

  • Buffettgirl

    WHY? Why would you chose to leave your little man in the car you dumb cunt? Then you swallow a handful of pills in front of him? Gee – don’t she gots pow’rful Mommy skills???

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Wow that’s a whole lot of red in that mug shot! “get on the floor & hide under the towel” because I know what I’m doing is wrong, I know that I can get in trouble for leaving my child in a hot car solo but instead of taking him inside I would rather come up with an asinine plan. I really have to wonder if red face is courtesy of 5-0 trying to slap the stupid put of her…

  • Jamal Mohmed

    She doesn’t need a reason when you’re twacked out addicted to adderall and hopped up on an variety of colored pills. Plus if you’re dumb enough to down them all in front of a cop you’re probably not suitable to raise a child. Her head’s a long way from being on straight, it’s not on her at all! haha

  • CT

    Why didn’t she just let her kid loose so they can actlike wild fucking animals like many other parents do in the Target by my house? It’s free kid day every Saturday. I’ve already got two five year olds so I’m definitely not in the market for anymore but if you are interested in a free kid, you should stop by.

  • CT

    WAIT, people still shop at Kmart?

  • The_Shadow_Knows

    Was she shopping for crack or meth?

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Yesss!!! Even that would have been exponentially better than to leave him in the car, roasting….

  • The_Shadow_Knows

    Not me. Their prices are high and they never have ANYTHING I want. Literally every time I go there looking for something, I end up going home mad and ordering it from Amazon instead. They used to be a decent chain, but now they’re the pits.

  • CT

    Amazon Prime ensures that I can continue my anti-social ways.

  • Rachel Ann

    Ahh hell I would’ve shot this ignorant bitch. That’s why I cannot be a cop dumb people like this stole my ire. There would be a lot of dumb maimed criminals due too me coz *grr* shit like this is unacceptable.
    Who wants to bet this bitch had plans on shoplifting which is why she didn’t take the kid in the store with her.

  • sugarpie

    The stories this 5 year old kid could tell…

  • JohnQknowitall

    Perhaps with Georgia’s more restrictive abortion bans they might see fit to allocate money to parenting classes and perhaps more oversite of the wellbeing of obviously unwanted children.

  • Curlykate910

    Better ending: “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 gave her a swift kick in the rear, then proceeded to lock her in the car and tell her to hide on the floor. Moore was last seen crying inside the car while police drove away and passerbys didn’t give a damn.”

  • Curlykate910

    That’s what I was thinking too! I think the saddest part of the story might be that the doors were unlocked, and he was so terrified of the consequences that he didn’t even open the doors even though he was roasting in there!

  • 18th40

    “Amazon Prime ensures that I can continue accentuate my anti-social ways.”

    Fixed it for ya.

  • VenusDoom3

    Jesus effing… you can stick a 5-year-old in a shopping cart, lady. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. (The other half is getting off meth.)

  • 18th40

    They are if your plans involve shopping on a five finger discount card.

  • CT

    I really do own MANY crowbars.

  • Parrot Toes

    Bitch. Is leaving your kids alone in a car-turned-oven preferable to leaving your kid home alone these days? Wouldn’t it be easier to hide your shitty parenting by leaving them in a closet rather than a car? What the fuck?! Why so many of these types of cases lately, with both kids and dogs? I’d say it must be something being put in the water, but that scares me. A 3 year old just died from being roasted alive in a car here yesterday. I’m drinking that water.
    I say we amend laws that allow these fucking shitty ass parents to be tied to a rack while allowing every citizen of their town/city to deliver one swift kick to the groin. That should take care of any future babies to pot roast.

  • Andyman

    Meh.. Maybe – Although I have a 5 year old too, and with the child safety locks set, you can’t open the door from the inside; even if it is unlocked. I bet he tried! I would have!

  • 18th40

    Yeah.. but you hate people and never leave the house anyway.

  • CT

    For you – I will make an exception.

  • ultracreep

    I dunno, my son was evil when he was five. He once actually purposefully escaped from his father, who was looking high and low for him in a store. Soon after my husband hears “A little boy has lost his “Uncle” Tony so please come to the service desk to claim him.” My husband went up there to claim our son who had a sheepish grin on his face while his dad had to claim to be “Uncle Tony” to take him home.

  • 18th40

    Hmmm…I wasn’t counting on that, are they big crowbars ?

  • techsupp0rt

    Placed in the custody of an uncle, and will soon likely be given right back to her after she says she’s vewy vewy sowwy.

  • Jessica Stewart

    Oh geez, don’t advertize to the chimos……..

  • Jessica Stewart

    A properly sized dog crate really does take care of everything, and usually you can fit it on the bottom of a shopping cart ;)

  • Jessica Stewart

    What kills me most about a lot of these mug shots is that the people don’t even look sorry after being arrested, I’m sure whatever pills she managed to swallow helped with this one. I could understand if they looked pleased with themselves if they thought they got away with something, but, Jesus, it’s like they don’t even understand that being booked and arrested is not a common even in most peoples lives and is (at least for normal people) followed by remorse or shame. If not for your actions then at least for being arrested. Maybe a little embarrassment that everyone knows you qualify as a shitty shitty caretaker (I can’t refer to her as a mother) and should not be allowed to be in charge of any living thing, and that likely includes yourself.

  • Lucy Van Pelt

    Covington…probably the part called Porterdale where the crack and meth heads hang

  • Blondie Mcgee

    Lucky that baby didn’t die! Thank God he’s out of the custody of that nasty slag.

  • Dre Mosley


  • captaingrumpy

    I agree , in Australia they are renowned for putting things on special and then having none in stock. Their prices are not too bad for here.

  • Parrot Toes

    Don’t celebrate yet, because she’ll most likely get him back once she’s done some rehab. She’ll pull the “I didn’t know what I was doing, the drugs got in the way of my leet mothering skills” card for sure.

  • SillyCynic

    There’s too much stupid there. I would think the state would sue her in the end for having to put their entire police force out of commission for a couple weeks due to “Hand injuries” from the amount of slapping this would obviously require.

  • newstarshipsmell

    In dog years.

  • Heather4877

    That little boy is lucky to be alive and unlucky that this cunt didn’t succeed in swallowing all of whatever was in that bottle.

    I’m getting too old to keep reading this shit. I used to just think, “HOLY SHIT!” Then I’d call my husband over to share in the glory of how fucked up people can be. Now I just end up feeling sad and powerless.

  • Baeta_Mordred

    Glad there are still some citizens out there willing not to be bystanders, another hour or so this would have been a story of another dead kid by a dumbass parent….

  • Whatevn

    I was visiting family and, I was smacking a crowbar against my hand, looking at my father, and he asked me where I got it, i said to him, “I borrowed this from CT.”

    I shouldnt think of people from DD in my outside life

  • CT

    I’m honored. I own several sizes. Before I had my sons a few years ago, my sister and I tore out a pink and black tiled bathroom to its bare bones. Later, I threatened to shove a crowbar up someone’s butt when I bought a new one (for a budget busting $7) when they complained about it. Memories, like the corners of my mind.

  • sweekymom

    On Mars.

  • Scretch

    i hate those things. Several friends and I went shopping one day and i was in the back seat. Anyway when it was time to get out I couldn’t. I was trapped. I felt so panicky until the driver unlocked them. All I could think is how kidnappers must love those. There should be an option not to have those on your vehicle. I don’t think they’re a good idea, personally.

  • The_Shadow_Knows

    A dog crate would be a good place to put this fugly tweaker “mother”.

  • The_Shadow_Knows

    Our local one usually has the sales item, but they fail to ring up the proper sales price at the register 90% of the time. I guess they’re hoping shoppers won’t notice.

  • WarriorArtemis

    what a fucking bitch. Make her ass sit in the 90 degree car while the cops go shop.

  • CuttlefishofCthulhu

    Shit I’m 34 and I don’t even look that old… then again I don’t fuck with pills or hard drugs… just ganja & a lil vodka once in awhile. I got priorities mane! LOL

  • Heather Michelle Kyle

    I have a 4 year old. Worse case you can stick them in the cart problem solved. Some people just aren’t fit to be parents.

  • hookerpie

    Makes you wonder why the child did not get out of the car himself. Not that I am defending this carrot-top ass bitch, and I am sure this boy is scared shit less of her but the doors were unlocked, the kid was five. Does he not know how to open the doors? Just saying. I got a 5 year old and she is all about doing things herself. Fucked up people man. Fucked up people.

  • Leasha

    What the fuck? “charges of contributing to the depravation of a minor”? Why not attempted murder? If it was 90* outside the inside of the car was at least over 30* hotter! Throw her ass in prison and NEVER let that poor boy near her again. God, that poor baby. What the fuck is wrong with people? If you don’t want a kid, DON’T HAVE ONE, or if you do, drop them off at a police station, hospital, firehouse, etc. Yes, there are age limits with that but it’s better you dump them and eventually get in trouble for the kid being past the age limit than HURT the innocent child and be in trouble for longer. What is so hard about asking, say, the uncle/current legal guardian of the kid, to watch him while she shops? What’s so hard about pushing the kid in a cart while you shop? I have a 3 year old, I know a trip to the grocery store isn’t the funnest thing in the world with kids but they are KIDS. It’s not fucking rocket science to shop at the same time, or does copious amounts of “multi-colored” Adderall make you that fucking incompetent?

  • Jenn Nicole Hunt

    but then there are the bystanders that call the cops when a kid is in a car safe and sound, just trying to cause people problems, so not everyone is looking out for the kid. My car can be left running with the air on, no keys, can not be put into drive, and my kid is old enough to stay in the car. But people still want to call the cops. This situations, I can understand, but just because a kid is in the car alone, doesn’t mean they are in danger. 5 is way too young, but don’t just assume a kid is burning up in a car that has no driver.

  • Pamela Hazelton

    Shoulda just have let her swallow the pills.

  • Whitewitch

    When I was a small child my parents left me and my two sisters in the car while they shopped – we would not have dreamed of getting out of the car – my father would have beaten us severely…maybe that is why?

  • hookerpie

    I’m sorry to hear that. I would never leave my kids in the car while I went shopping. Maybe I am just paranoid.
