Kentucky Woman Arrested for Leaving Kids in Car With Loaded Guns While She Tanned
The two children were five-years-old and five-months-old, respectively.
A Kentucky woman was arrested on Tuesday after leaving her two children inside a car with loaded guns while she visited a Louisville tanning salon.
Monica Gentry, a 25-year-old woman from Shepherdsville, was allegedly apprehended by Louisville Metro Police after officers found her children still alone when they arrived at the scene. According to a report from local news outlet WDRB, Gentry faces charges for endangering the welfare of a minor. One firearm was said to be within reach of the older child, who is five-years-old, while the younger sibling, five-months-old, also remained in the car for about 30 minutes while their mother was inside the Sun Tan City location.
Police were reportedly tipped off by a passerby who phoned in the situation, saying they had seen the children alone in the car. AccuWeather data shows that the high temperature for Tuesday was 93 degrees Fahrenheit in Louisville.
A police department spokesperson was not immediately available upon The Drive's request for comment on the situation.
