Joliet police are looking for a woman who left three children in a car without coats in -10-degree weather.

Police put out an alert asking for information on the woman, who reportedly left three small kids in the vehicle while shopping at Walgreens, 4288 Caton Farm Rd., which has a Plainfield address.

"The children were said to be without coats and the vehicle was not running," according to Joliet police. "When a concerned citizen confronted the suspect about the children left in the vehicle, she began to scream at this citizen and cause a disturbance inside the store."

The police are trying to identify this person.... No one is saying anyone is guilty of anything but they probably have evidence of a crime so they are trying to IDENTIFY.

Leaving children in a car like that can be considered child endangerment. This woman is guilty of a crime and it is sick that someone would do that!
