PASADENA, Md. — A Mary­land mother is be­ing held on $500,000 bail af­ter po­lice say she left her 6-week-old daugh­ter on the side of a road Satur­day. Anne Arun­del County po­lice charged 26-year-old San­dra Clara McClary of Bal­ti­more with child ne­glect and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment on Sun­day. Lt. T.J. Smith says that McClary left the baby on the road­side and that the in­ci­dent might be re­lated to a do­mes­tic dis­pute. Po­lice say a res­i­dent of Pasadena found the in­fant in a scuffed car­rier be­fore mid­night Satur­day and called po­lice. The baby is in good con­di­tion and in Depart­ment of Child Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices’ cus­tody. Po­lice say McClary called po­lice Sun­day morn­ing claim­ing to be the baby’s mother. She is sched­uled to go to trial this week in a string of rob­beries. In a 911 call that po­lice re­leased Mon­day, the dis­patcher sounds in­cred­u­lous when the caller re­ports that a baby in a stroller is in the road near her house. A baby can be heard cry­ing dur­ing some of the call. Caller: I have a prob­lem here. I live at ... And it’s a baby in our street, and no one’s around and baby’s just steady cry­ing. Dis­patcher: About how old? Caller: About 2 months old. Dis­patcher: And there’s no one around? Caller: No one at all. She’s in a stroller, we don’t want any­one run over her, out in the street. Dis­patcher: It’s in the road? Caller: In the road.
