A Brownsville mother is behind bars after authorities found her 2-year-old daughter wandering a rural road all by herself.

Cameron County Sheriff TMs Department deputies arrested 31-year-old Anita Moctezuma Martinez late Sunday night.

Court records show that Martinez TMs 2-year-old daughter was found wandering in the middle of Dockberry Road alone.

The records show that cars were speeding and that there were no street lights on the rural road.

Deputies located Martinez at the family TMs home and arrested her on child abandonment/endangerment charges.

Martinez was booked out of the Cameron County Jail on Tuesday but taken into custody by U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents due to an immigration detainer.
