A Florida mother was accused of forcing her child to sit in a chair alone and hold her parking spot while she went to the store.

Elda Solis, 48, was arrested and charged with child neglect after police said she used her 6-year-old child to guard a parking spot at the Eastwind Apartments in Marathon.

According to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office press release, Solis left the complex around 10 p.m. on Dec. 7 to go to a nearby Publix.

She placed a chair in the vacant spot and made her young child sit there and wait there until she came back.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said it was alerted about the incident the following day.

When officers questioned Solis about it, she allegedly admitted that it was true.

Police say the child told investigators that it wasn’t the first time she had made them guard the spot while she ran errands.

Solis was booked and later released from jail on Thursday.
