ALDEN, NY (WIVB) – The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says a woman was arrested after leaving her 11-year-old son and 12-day-old daughter in a running vehicle.

Officials say this happened on Wednesday evening when Felicia Maltbie, 29, was visiting an inmate at the Erie County Correctional Facility.

Deputies responded after hearing reports of children being left in an unattended vehicle.

After this, the Sheriff’s Office says Maltbie’s visit was terminated and she was taken into custody.

The Buffalo woman was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated unlicensed operation after officials found that her license was suspended.

The children were placed in the custody of friends. Maltbie was taken to the Erie County Holding Center on $250 bail.
