MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A South Florida mom is facing child neglect charges after police say she left her child alone in a car, while she went shopping.

Police said Veronika Lopez left the four-year-old daughter, who has autism, alone in her mini-van with the windows and doors locked Thursday at Dadeland Station Mall.

A good Samaritan notified police, who determined Lopez had been inside the store for nearly half an hour, while the girl was locked inside the van.
