GEORGIA LOTTO. HE IS A FORMER EMPLOYEE WHO STOLE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FROM THE SAFE. FELONY CHILD ENDANGERMENT CHARGES ARE BEING FILED AFTER A BABY WAS LEFT ALONE IN A LOCKED CAR FOR CLOSE TO ONE HOUR. Reporter: POLICE WERE CALLED TO MAINE PARK SUNDAY AFTERNOON. PEOPLE WERE ENJOYING THE SUMMERLIKE WEATHER BUT THEY NOTICED A TALLER ALONE INSIDE A PARKED CAR. WE GOT A CALL FROM SOMEBODY SAYING THEY FOUND A BABY THAT WAS LEFT IN A CAR AND THEY FELT IT NEEDED MEDICAL ASSISTANCE BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN IN THE CAR FOR A WHILE. Reporter: THERE WAS A BABY BOY IN THE BACKSEAT OF A WHITE NISSAN MAXIMA WITH MISSISSIPPI PLATES. THE BOY WAS NOT IN A PROPER CAR SEAT AND KNOW WHAT IN THE AREA HAD SEEN ANYONE APPROACHED THE CAR. ONCE WE GOT OVER THERE AND THE OFFICER STARTED TO INVESTIGATE, WE FOUND OUT THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT THE PARENTS OF THE CHILD MAY HAVE BEEN GONE FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES. YESTERDAY IT WAS ABOUT 75 DEGREES. THE CAR WAS NOT RUNNING AT THE TIME AND THE DOORS WERE LOCKED BUT THE FRONT WINDOW WAS DOWN JUST A BIT AND THEY WERE ABLE TO FORCE THE WINDOW DOWN WITHOUT BREAKING THE GLASS. THE BABY APPEARED TO BE DEHYDRATED SO WE CALLED THE AMBULANCE. Reporter: THAT WAS ABOUT THE TIME THAT THE BOYS PARENTS RETURNED TO THE CAR. BOTH OF THEM SHOWED UP SAYING THEY HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR A RESTROOM. THEY GAVE THE OFFICER SOMEWHAT OF AN EXCUSE SAYING THEY HAD ONLY BEEN GONE FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEY WENT TO THE RESTROOM BUT AFTER INTERVIEWING WITNESSES, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE BABY HAVE BEEN THERE MUCH LONGER. THEY WERE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND CHARGED WITH LEAVING A CHILD IN A MOTOR VEHICLE AND ENDANGERING THE WELFARE OF A CHILD. THE BOY WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL WHERE AUTHORITIES SAY THEY FOUND BRUISING ON HIS MIDDLE AND LOWER BACK.
