A couple allegedly caught stealing from a Wal-Mart in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla. had left three small children in a car outside the store, and never told authorities the kids were there — not even after they got arrested, reports
CBS Miami.
Tosheba Hope, 30, and her boyfriend, Gerald Moultrie, 24, are charged with grand theft in the incident, which took place around 7 p.m. Monday.
The station reports the couple is accused of trying to steal $600 in tools and car accessories.
The kids — ages 2, 7 and 9 — were discovered some seven hours later, early Tuesday morning, still in the car, when a passerby noticed them in the back seat crying.
During a court hearing on the theft charges, Hope told the judge she was expecting. “I have three small children and I’m currently pregnant,” she said.
In addition to grand theft, Hope and Moultrie are facing charges of child neglect, according to CBS Miami.
Both were released on their own recognizance and told not to go back to Wal-Mart, reports the station.
Two of the children will be placed with the father. Child protective services are looking for a relative to take the third.
