PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay-area police have arrested a woman for leaving her 19-month-old daughter in a car while she shopped.

Sgt. Adam Geissenberger says witnesses alerted Pinellas Park Police that Vita Abramenkova had left her child in a locked, running vehicle for 40 minutes Monday afternoon.

Geissenberger says the car’s air conditioning was circulating on low while the temperature in the parking lot was 92 degrees. The child was found crying inside the vehicle.

Geissenberger says Abramenkova told police her daughter was asleep when they arrived at the store and she didn’t want to rouse the child.

Abramenkova was charged with child neglect. She was released on $2,000 bond. Pinellas County jail records did not show whether she had an attorney.
