Deputies: New Port Richey woman left baby at home alone, headed for bar

NEW PORT RICHEY — Home alone with her baby Thursday night, deputies say Molly Mary Flynn started drinking.

She put the 22-month-old girl down for the night and went out.

She walked downstairs to Lonzalo's, a neighborhood pizzeria and bar, a Pasco sheriff's report states, where she panhandled patio patrons for their libations.

She had no luck with the barkeep, either.

Flynn told them all about her daughter asleep upstairs.

Someone called authorities.

A deputy arrived and caught a whiff of alcohol on Flynn, the report states.

The deputy asked about Flynn's baby, who she said was "fine."

The deputy asked to see the baby, and Flynn led the way through the apartment's unlocked door.

They found the baby asleep in a bedroom.

The deputy asked how long Flynn, 38, had been out, the report states. She guessed an hour. According to the deputy's watch, it had been two.

Flynn, of 3014 Town Ave., was charged with neglect and obstruction. She remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Friday in lieu of $5,150 bail.
