Police: Glastonbury Woman Left Child in Car While at Stop & Shop

A Farmcliff Drive woman was arrested Saturday after police say she left a child unattended in her car at Stop & Shop.


Marybeth Frayne, 49, of 284 Farmcliff Drive, Glastonbury, was arrested on charges of leaving a child under 12 unsupervised after police responded to a report that a child had been left unattended in a car in the parking lot of Stop & Shop on Glastonbury Boulevard.

At 2:20 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2., police responded to a report and found the child unattended in Frayne’s vehicle in Stop & Shop, 215 Glastonbury Boulevard. A subsequent investigation led to Frayne’s arrest.

She was released on the scene, and is scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court on Feb. 20.

The child was not harmed during the incident.

Wow, i used to beg my mom to leave me in the car while she went shopping.....why in the world would you arrest someone for this! These liberal freaking parents need to wake the hell up and realize that over protecting kids, even kids they have no business butting into, are the reason why kids can't tick up for themselves. Shame on whoever called the cops and shame on GPD for actually charging the lady!!!!

Ridiculous! At that age my child was allowed to be home alone for up to an hr while I was still at work - the bus company can drop a kid off at home alone at theat age - yet you cant leave your kid in the car for ten minutes????? unbelievable.... and to the person who called the cops on the mom - SHAME ON YOU!

and as for the child - way to go GPD traumatizing the child by arresting the mom - are you picking up the tab for her therapy?
