ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- A woman has been accused of abandoning her child in Orangeburg County.
Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said 24-year-old Amanda Leigh Vosburg of Neeses was arrested by Barnwell police Tuesday and charged with abandoning a 2-year-old girl and food stamp fraud.
Ravenell says Vosburg earlier this month left the child at a home where two people were arrested on methamphetamine charges.
The sheriff said investigators discovered Vosburg was receiving help from the Department of Social Services food stamp program for two children. Investigators determined one of the children was being cared for by a grandmother.
It was not clear if Vosburg has an attorney.
Ravenel says investigators are trying to determine where Vosburg has been since dropping the child off at the home Aug. 2. The child is in protective custody.
