Shauna Lee Bennett, mom of three year old girl kid was arrested for abandoning her child and endangering the life of kid by allowing the child to wander outside on its own in Lubbock, Texas.

The reports from the Lubbock, Texas, Police, said that the police got a call from the owner of the apartment complex, where Bennett lives, about a girl child left alone.

The police arrived at the apartment complex following the complaint. 

When the police reached the reported place, they found the child wandering on its own around the apartment.

The girl child was found in an extremely dirty condition. The body of the girl child was fully covered with red bumps and reflected a condition of least hygiene, according to The Daily Meal.

The child was complaining about hunger lots of times seeing the police and made a weird demand by asking, "I need a Beer". This bizarre demand alarmed the police.

When the police arrived in to the apartment of Shauna Lee Bennett, 42 years old lady, the mother of the 3 year old girl child, there was no response at all.

The door to the house was left open. So following no response from inside the home, the police went inside the house. The lady was sound asleep when the police entered the house. She said she has no idea where her daughter was at that time, according to Fox 34 News.

The police report written by the officer said, "As soon as I entered I was overwhelmed by the filthy state of the apartment. There were piles of dirty and moldy dishes on the counter, stove, and sink. There was trash on the floor and counter. There were cockroaches absolutely everywhere. The kitchen was in no way sanitary or functional. I had probable cause to believe that [the little girl] had not been fed, washed, or provided with any type of general medical care or treatment for an unsafe amount of time."

The child is now placed in Child's Protection Services. Bennett is held in Lubbock's detention centre with a bond amount of $15,000.
