A Warren, Mich., woman has been charged in Lake Superior Court with neglect of a dependent and possession of marijuana after police found an unattended young child inside a car in the parking lot of a salon in Hobart.

Keneesha Donya-Lajuan Reeder, 27, admitted she left her 6-year-old alone at about 4:20 p.m. March 17 in the parking lot of the Hair Cuttery, 1617 E. 37th Ave.

When an officer went to check on the child, he noticed the odor of burnt marijuana coming from the car. Reeder admitted the two small plastic bags containing 6 grams of marijuana were hers and said she had smoked marijuana in the car the day before.

A witness told police she noticed the car had been in the parking lot for about five to 10 minutes.
