BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Baton Rouge police have arrested a 30-year-old Mississippi woman after they found her smoking marijuana in the car with her two young children, then leaving them in the car while she went shopping in Cortana Mall.

Jasmin Washington, of Natchez, Miss., was booked Sunday with child desertion, contributing to the delinquency of juveniles and possession of Schedule I drugs.

An off-duty police officer working security at the mall found the two children, ages 2 and 4, sleeping inside.

When security made a page through the Mall speaker systems, police say Washington walked up to the security officer, smelling of marijuana.

It was unclear whether Washington has an attorney.
