Police Arrest Georgia Woman They Say Left 3 Kids In Hot Car

HIRAM, Ga. (AP) — Police arrested a Georgia woman they say left her three young children in a hot car.

Hiram Police Chief Todd Vandezande said in a statement Monday that officers responded Saturday after witnesses said the young boys were inside a car, sweating profusely and in obvious distress.

Vandezande said officers got one child to unlock the door. Vandezande said the outside temperature was about 88 degrees. It was about 101 degrees inside the vehicle.

Vandezande said the children’s mother, 39-year-old Loleatha Stallworth of Powder Springs, came out of a store 10 minutes later. Officers arrested her on charges including cruelty to children. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had a lawyer.

The children, a 2-year-old and 4-year-old twins, were released to their father.

Hiram is about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta.
