Police: Aunt Left 2 Kids in Cold Car in Hopkins

HOPKINS (AP) – A 55-year-old woman is under arrest after Hopkins police say she left two children alone inside a cold car while she drank at a bar.

Police were called Sunday night to a bar and restaurant on a child welfare check. A restaurant patron had found the two children – ages 2 and 3 – in a locked, unattended car in the parking lot.  The car was not running.

The children’s aunt was supposed to be caring for them but was inside the bar. Police say she later left in a taxi.

The children’s parents were at work and were notified immediately. They told police to turn the children over to another relative.

The aunt later returned to the bar and was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment.
