Woman Leaves Grandchild Locked In A Car In A Mall Parking Lot

A North Carolina woman has been ticketed for leaving her 3-year-old grandson in the car while she shopped in a South Carolina mall.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Saturday that 51-year-old Dyna Gore Johnston of Tabor City, N.C., was given a ticket for cruelty to children. She is set to appear in court Dec. 30.

Officials paged Johnston after a mall security officer noticed a vehicle with a child inside had been parked in the parking lot at Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach for about 15 minutes. Police say Johnston returned about 20 minutes later and told officers she left her grandson in the car because he was sleeping and she didn't want to wake him.
There was no answer Saturday at a telephone listing for Johnston.
