Florida mother charged after day care staff find gun inside her 2-year-old’s lunchbox

Authorities said a mother in Florida has been charged after day care staff found a handgun inside her 2-year-old son’s lunchbox.

Shanae Davis, 39, faces several charges including allowing a minor to obtain a firearm and child neglect after a teacher at Jackson’s Daycare Center in Riviera Beach opened the lunch box with a 9mm Glock 43 handgun inside it.

According to police documents, the discovery caused concern by the teachers. Parents who later learned about the incident were also stunned, WPEC reported.

“It’s scary,” Stephenne Warembourg told the outlet. “I mean, you know when I’m sending my kid to school thinking that he’s going to be safe? I mean, are they? I don’t know.”

Police were subsequently called to the day care facility and responded promptly. Davis was later arrested but, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office’s records, the mother was released on Friday, March 15, after posting bail.

West Palm Beach Police spokesman Mike Jachels reminded the importance of gun safety in a statement to Telemundo 51 Miami, saying such an oversight or carelessness can have fatal consequences.

Fortunately, in this case, no one was injured.

According to Telemundo Miami, the owner of the day care chose not to file charges against the mother. The state prosecutor’s office, however, decided to do so.
