Woman arrested for leaving children in car while shopping

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A woman is in jail after leaving her two children in the car while shopping at Amigos near N. University and Auburn last night.

Police reports indicate 21-year-old Alexandra Estrada went into the store without her small children, said to be younger than two-years-old.

Estrada told police she left her children in the car because she thought she would not be in the store long.

Police say Estrada told them she left the car running, claiming one of the children knew how to turn the vehicle off.

At the time of the call, it was reportedly around 96 degrees outside, meaning the temperatures in the vehicle could reach more than 100 degrees in a matter of minutes. 

Estrada is charged with abandoning and endangering a child.
