Mother Arrested For Leaving Children In A Crate

On Thursday, deputies were conducting an investigation at the Interstate Warehouse and Distribution Center, in the 8200 block of East 23rd street in Missouri, when they found two children, ages 4 and 6, living there. They were initially responding to a report of a "chop shop." The children were barefoot and filthy, inside a 10-by-8-foot crate. The youngest child had a cup of dry ramen noodles with dirt in it.

The deputies removed the children from the location and they were transported to Children’s Mercy hospital, where they were examined and bathed. The 6-year-old told the detectives that they lived in the cave with their mother. She was contacted and taken into custody on Friday. Interviewed by investigators, Mugrauer said she had left the children in the cave without a parent for “several” days. Prosecutors requested the mother be held on $75,000 bond.
