Police: Mom left 2 kids in car to attend concert
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) A South Florida woman is facing charges after authorities say she left two young children alone in a parking lot while she attended a Lil Wayne concert.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that employees at the Cruzan Amphitheatre first spotted the children -- ages 3 and 5 -- around 7 p.m. Sunday. An employee eventually questioned the children, who said their mother had gone to the concert.
The Palm Beach Post reports that deputies caught up with 25-year-old Brittany Nicole Harris as she left the concert. Authorities said Harris initially told deputies her cousin had brought the children but later acknowledged that she had left them in the car.
Harris was arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect. She was later released on $20,000 bail.
Child welfare workers took the children.
