Marshalltown Police arrested a woman who they said left five children by themselves in a freezing car.
Twenty-six-year-old Ruth Ramirez was charged with five counts of child endangerment.
Police said on Tuesday, a customer found a two-year-old boy wandering around a parking lot in below freezing temperatures.
That led police to Ramirez’s car where they found four other kids inside. All of the children in the car were under six-years-old.
Police said that Ramirez is the mother of one of the children.
