    Woman leaves 3 year old kid in parked SUV for 9 hours while she's in Casino

    LA CENTER, Wash. -- A Clackamas woman was arrested Tuesday after casino employees told police her 3-year-old had been left in a parked car for more than nine hours.

    It happened in the parking lot of the Palace Casino Tuesday morning.

    Employees called the police after a security guard heard a child crying in an SUV around 1:30 p.m.

    "With as dark as the windows were in the vehicle I don't think the child would've been located had the child not been crying and security not walking by or somebody walking by at the time," said Sergeant Jerry Lester of the La Center Police Department.

    Two officers in the area arrested 32-year-old Valerie Tran, of Clackamas, for leaving the child in an unattended car. She told them she had been gambling since around midnight and had been checking in on the child.

    "It may be 60 degrees outside, but the temperatures can soar inside a vehicle," said Lester.  "It's unacceptable behavior."

    The child was not hurt and police said the child was put into the custody of child services.

    "In my opinion the kid should be taken away," said Valene Welk of Clackamas.

    Seriously!!&nbsp;


    “Why is this such a big deal?” Valerie Tran asked La Center police while being arrested for allegedly leaving her 3-year-old son locked in her car for more than eight hours while she gambled in a casino, police say.

    Tran, 32, who lives in Clackamas, Ore., allegedly was intoxicated when confronted by police Tuesday afternoon.

    She was still wondering why she was arrested as a Clark County sheriff’s deputy drove her to the jail in Vancouver, said Sgt. Jerry Lester with the La Center Police Department.

    Tran was no longer in custody Wednesday evening, a jail employee said.

    When found in the car, the boy had soiled his clothing and had a cup of sour milk to sustain him. A security officer on patrol heard him crying in Tran’s Lincoln Navigator SUV in a casino parking lot about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Lester said.

    Lester said the security officer notified his supervisor, who told police.

    At the time, Lester said, he’d been at lunch in Chips Palace Restaurant and Casino with La Center Officer Rowdy Berry and sheriff’s Deputy Scott Holmes.

    Employees of the Chips Palace Casino, 318 Old Pacific Highway, used overhead speakers to ask the person who had the Lincoln to come forward. After being paged twice, Tran cashed in her chips, went outside and found officers waiting for her, Lester said.

    Tran admitted she’d left the boy in the car, Lester said.

    “She said she’d checked on the kid every couple of hours and he was sleeping,” Lester said.

    Security videos indicated she’d arrived in the parking space about 4 a.m. Tuesday, Lester said.

    Although police hadn’t seen Tran driving the Lincoln, they measured her alcohol level at 0.14, considerably more than the state’s DUI threshold of 0.08, Lester said.

    Police called for officials with Child Protective Services, who took custody of the toddler.

    Alerted by casino employees, officers found the boy sitting in his car seat in the SUV, which was locked, with no window open, Lester said. He didn’t appear harmed by his long wait in the warm car, but he was wet and his cup of milk had soured.

    “The deputy changed him and got him into fresh undergarments,” Lester said.

    Casino employees brought the boy a peanut-butter sandwich and some watermelon.

    It was a cloudy afternoon and police measured the outside temperature at about 63 degrees.

    “Inside my car, with the door open, it was 85 degrees. And it definitely felt warm inside (Tran’s SUV),” Lester said.

    ‘it’s just crazy’

    La Center officers deal with children left in cars about five to eight times a year, “But not even close to this magnitude, this length of time,” Lester said.

    Police have for many years warned that leaving children or pets in cars, especially on hot, sunny days, can cause tragic injuries or death.

    “I think it’s absolutely unacceptable, it’s just crazy,” Lester said.

    “She wanted to know why it was such a big deal, why we cared,” he said.

    Officers typically issue a ticket for the misdemeanor violation and release the person. It was the first time in several years that he could recall La Center officers jailing someone for the offense, Lester said.

    In this case, besides allegedly leaving the boy for such a long time, Tran was intoxicated and officers couldn’t allow her to drive away, Lester said.

    It's a good thing it wasn't too hot outside. If this happened today in Dallas, the child would have been dead within an hour. This woman abandoned her child in a car while she drank and gambled! That's a bad mom for you. However, it could have been worse if she was out driving around with him in the car, and at least she didn't leave him home alone while she was out drinking and gambling.

    So when she was done gambling, she was going to jump in the car and drive her 3 year old home, while she was drunk. 0.14 is pretty much shit-faced.

    Lady, that's what the big deal is.

    This happens weekly at the casinos around here.. To the point where that type of story would be ion like page 6 of the paper if at all. &nbsp;I like the ones where the person is arrested and they say I wasn't gambling I was at the buffet using my comps.
    :-D

    Wow, I didn't even think about the kid's father. I guess that's a sign of the times. I just assumed there was no dad, so to speak.

    my husband has never laid a hand on me, but i would not blame him for slapping me across the face if i ever did anything like this. &nbsp;not saying its right for a man to ever hurt their wife like that, but she put that boy in a lot of danger b/c of her selfish ways.

    I couldn't agree more! Likewise, if my husband did anything like this to our kids I'd do a lot more than just slap him across the face.

    LA CENTER, Wash. -- A Clackamas woman accused of leaving her 3-year-old son alone in an SUV for more than nine hours while she gambled was deemed an &quot;unfit&quot; parent by a judge Thursday.

    Two officers arrested 32-year-old Valerie Tran, of Clackamas, for leaving her child in an unattended car outside the Palace Casino in LaCenter, Washington. She told officers she had been gambling since around midnight and had been checking in on the child.

    A Palace Casino security guard heard a child crying in a Lincoln Navigator about 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Casino staff contacted police, who found the boy in the vehicle.

    Tran appeared in court Thursday, first to be arraigned and then for a custody hearing.

    After her Thursday court appearance, Tran was asked:&nbsp; &quot;What were you thinking? Just tell us that.&quot;

    &quot;I guess I have mental problems,&quot; Tran said. She told reporters she was seeking help to stop drinking and gambling.

    &quot;Drinking, gambling, leaving your kid in a car - not a good combination,&quot; said Sgt. Jerry Lester of the LaCenter Police Department.

    A Clackamas County judge ordered that Tran's son be placed into temporary foster care, and suggested Tran needed help for gambling addiction.

    &quot;With as dark as the windows were in the vehicle I don't think the child would've been located had the child not been crying and security not walking by or somebody walking by at the time,&quot; said Sgt. Lester. &quot;It may be 60 degrees outside, but the temperatures can soar inside a vehicle. It's unacceptable behavior.&quot;

    i just don't understand what is going on with people these days. It's just getting to the point where more and more people just don't give a shit about what happens to their children. This world is full of bad shit that can happen to your kids it's your job as a mother to protect your children not put them in harms way.&nbsp; :x :x
