NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — A Noblesville mother was arrested after her two children, ages 2 and 4, were found unattended in a minivan in the parking lot of a store.
Liudmila V. Eaton, 40, faces two counts of neglect of a dependent. She was taken to the Hamilton County Jail.
Noblesville Police Department went about 1:30 p.m. Thursday to the Walmart Supercenter at 16865 Clover Road in the Town and Country Plaza Shopping Center. That’s southwest of the intersection of Pleasant Street and State Road 37.
A complainant showed officers to a 2009 Dodge Caravan with the two children restrained in car seats. The minivan was not running, and the windows were rolled down about 6 inches.
The temperature outside was 88 degrees when officers found the children, police said.
