Edwardsville, Illinois – A mother leaves her infant daughter in the car while she gambles

Timeka Coleman-Jones, 28, of St. Ann, Missouri was charged with misdemeanor child abandonment by prosecutors in southwestern Illinois’ Madison County after leaving her seven month old infant daughter strapped in a car while Coleman-Jones went inside the Argosy Casino in Alton to gamble. Police suspect that the child was in the car for approximately 20 minutes before someone saw the child and notified casino security. When police arrived on the scene, they found the baby sitting in the car with the rear windows cracked open. The baby was unharmed. Online court records do not show whether Timeka Coleman-Jones has an attorney. Argosy Casino Alton is located on 1 Piasa Street, Alton, Illinois 62002.
