MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A North Miami Beach woman was arrested after her five-year-old son was found wandering alone in a convenience store.
According to North Miami Beach police, on Wednesday officers were sent to a 7-Eleven in the 15000 block of W Dixie Highway after they received a call about the boy.
After speaking with him, the boy took the officers to where he and his mother, 29-year-old Shawaneky Galumette, live but no one was home.
Since the apartment is in the Miami-Dade police department’s jurisdiction, they were contacted.
