SANFORD, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) - A Sanford woman was arrested after her 4-year-old daughter was found digging through a trash can near a gas station, according to authorities.
   
Two hours after the child was discovered by a passer-by at a Sunoco on S. U.S. Highway 17-92, police located the mother, identified as Jessica Flores, at a nearby hotel.  Officers said the room was a mess and reeked of rotting food.

Flores, 27, is charged with child neglect.  She has since been released from the Seminole County Jail, but her two daughters remain in state custody.
