A woman from Kissimmee, FL is facing both theft and child neglect charges for allegedly leaving two children in a car in the parking lot of a store where she was shoplifting.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Stacey Armstrong after employees of the store caught her shoplifting $100 of candy and some cosmetics. As she was being interviewed by police, she also admitted to leaving her 11-year-old daughter in the car with a newborn child she was babysitting for a friend.

Fortunately, neither children were harmed as a result of the incident. Armstrong faces two counts of petty theft and one count of child neglect.
