Parents leave child in car to go to strip club | Crime
Palmetto, Florida -- A couple was arrested Sunday after police found their child alone in their car outside a strip club.
The sheriff's office says the couple, Edith Aguilar-Cardona and Israel Rangel-Ortiz went to Pandora's Box strip club around 1:15 a.m. and left their child in their car.
A witness called police and told responding deputies Rangel-Ortiz was inside ordering drinks, tipping entertainers and buying a private dance. Aguilar-Cardona was also inside and told deputies she also went in but they were planning on coming back.
Deputies say the child was left in the back of the car for about an hour.
Aguilar-Cardona, 25, and Rangel-Ortiz, 25, both of Ruskin, have been charged with Child Neglect without Great Harm.
The child is in the care of a relative.
