Law enforcement report

According to Lawrence police, a woman shopping in Checkers, 2300 La., saw two children alone in a car when she entered the store. The children were still there when she left the store about 15 minutes later.

Police interviewed the woman and took a report, then located the 41-year-old mother of the children at her home. Police noted at the time that the children appeared to be in good health.

The report was sent to the district attorney's office and the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services for review.
