Published: Updated:

EAST NAPLES, Fla.- A mother is in jail after leaving her child in the bathroom while she was on heroin.

Lisandra Perez, 28, was found on a bench with a child by Collier County deputies after someone found her other child abandoned in the restroom at the Golden Gate Community Center.

The boy was crying and told deputies he was told to “hide in the bathroom and not talk to anybody.”

Perez was taken to jail where she turned over a baggie and needle. Perez was out on bond from a previous heroin arrest and her new bond was revoked.

Perez will spend the next month in jail until her next court date; her children are with other family members.
