BELMONT, N.C. (AP) - Police say a baby sitter has been arrested after she left three young children in a running van at a Wal-Mart while she spoke to a man about buying a car.

Authorities told The Gaston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1nHPC8D ) that two people in the parking lot reported seeing children screaming and crying in the van with no adult around Friday.

Police say they found a 5-year-old, a 2-year-old and a 7-month-old child in the van, which was unlocked and running with the air conditioner on and a DVD playing.

Officers say the children’s baby sitter, 24-year-old Anna Conley, told them she was one row away in the lot talking about buying a car.

Conley was charged with three counts of misdemeanor child abuse. It wasn’t known if she had a lawyer.
