A Greenwood woman was arrested after police said she refused to pick up her son from the Johnson County Juvenile Detention Center.
Jama K. Childress, 32, 1232 Beacon Pointe Drive, Apt. B, was arrested on a charge of child neglect.
Police said she did not pick up her child after he was released from the county juvenile detention center and said she was no longer willing to care for him, according to a police report.
She told a caseworker from the state that she had thrown her son’s belongings away and did not want to visit or speak to the child, the report said.
Childress was arrested and taken to the Johnson County jail, where she was released on $3,000 bond.
