ROCKLAND, Maine — A mother from Friendship was arrested earlier this week after leaving an infant and a young child in a locked car parked outside of the Hannaford’s supermarket parking lot, according to police.

Angela Lash, 30, was charged Monday afternoon with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, according to Deputy Chief Wally Tower of the Rockland Police Department.

A person had reported to police at about 3:30 p.m. that the two children had been left in a car, Tower said.

Investigating police found that a 3-month-old baby and a 7-year-old child were in a locked car that had the air conditioning left on, he said.

“However, due to the age of the children, it’s still considered endangerment,” Tower said.

She was booked Monday at Knox County Jail in Rockland. printed on June 27, 2017
