Mother arrested after 4-year-old found wandering in street

WACO - A 26-year-old woman is in the McLennan County Jail after her 4-year-old child was found wandering a heavily trafficked street the morning of May 23.

Laura Olvera Barcenas has been charged with endangering a child and is being held on an immigration detainer. Barcenas was taken into custody following an investigation by police.

Police say a motorist found the child in the street of the busy intersection at 19th and Meridian in Waco. Barcenas admitted to police that she left her 4-year-old asleep at home alone while she went to a field day at Cedar Ridge Elementary School with her other children.

The child had walked over a quarter mile from her home in the 3900 block of North 21st.
