Cops: Partying mom told girl, 5, to rest in stranger’s truck

Keyonna Grant continued socializing while her 5-year-old daughter fell asleep in a stranger's truck, according to police.

Keyonna Grant continued socializing while her 5-year-old daughter fell asleep in a stranger's truck, according to police.

While she was drinking alcohol and socializing in an apartment complex, a Cobb County mother allegedly let her 5-year-old daughter stay outside past midnight. When the girl was tired, her mom told her to get into a stranger’s vehicle and lay down.

An hour later, Keyonna Zanetta Grant couldn’t find her daughter. And the truck the girl had gotten into was gone.

Grant then waited another hour before calling police, according to an arrest warrant obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Cobb County police searched through the early-morning hours Friday to find the child.

Seven hours later, the truck returned to the complex, police said. The girl was still asleep and unharmed when she was found around 7:30 a.m. Saturday by the truck’s owner, whose name was not released.

Grant, of Mableton, was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor charge. She was booked into the Cobb County jail, where she remained Wednesday on $10,000 bond.

A penis has no eyes. If it did there would be a lot less ugly people in the world.

This is a great example of why every story does not require a comment section. The woman’s mistakes are blatantly apparent. We don’t need every person in town spitting their vitriol and spreading negativity.

I'm sure she was distraught..
