A grandmother who left her five year old granddaughter in her car while she visited a casino in New York was arrested. The woman, 56 year old Renee Osby is facing charges after police were called to the casino. She left her granddaughter in an unheated car for over an hour while she played the slot machines in the Resorts World Casino. When she was arrested she was charged with acting in a manner “injurious to a child”.
Two visits to the casino
When Renee Osby was questioned after she finally returned to her car she claimed that she had just gone into the casino to cash a cheque. However security guards had seen her earlier when she tried to bring her granddaughter into the casino with her but was told that children weren’t allowed into the casino. She returned to the casino some time later and the security guards who had seen her were suspicious that she no longer had a child with her. The security guards searched the casino’s car park and found her five year old granddaughter inside her unheated car in temperatures that were below freezing. They called the police. The child had spent over an hour in the freezing car while her grandmother played the slot machines.
