18-month-old found wandering alone by Church TMs Chicken

An 18-month-old was found alone by Church TMs Chicken in San Benito after following a dog, authorities said.

According to authorities, a passerby saw her walking alone near Church TMs and called 911.

San Benito police responded to the call around 11:30 a.m. today.

The 18-month girl pointed in the direction of an alley, which prompted police to apartments nearby.

Authorities contacted the mother and grandmother, who were living next to each other at the apartment complex.

They both had conflicting stories about the supervision of the 18-month-old girl.

The 32-year-old mother was arrested on a child endangerment charge and was transported to the city jail.
