SPRING, Texas — When the owner of Skate Champions roller rink got ready to lock up late Friday night, he was surprised to find a young boy sitting outside alone.

The owner called Precinct 4 just before midnight.

Deputies arrived at the 5500 block of Fellowship Lane in Spring and found the boy’s mother unconscious in a nearby parked car.

Investigators say Jennifer Moore Frenchmeyer admitted she had smoked crack cocaine before passing out.

Frenchmeyer was arrested and charged with child abandonment with intent to return.
