A situation that pops up a lot nationally has happened in the Illinois Valley.

Twenty-seven-year-old Abigail Einhaus of La Salle is accused of leaving a 2-year-old out in a warm car while she went shopping at the Peru Walmart on Monday afternoon. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the child was sleeping in his car seat and was okay but he had been left in the warm car with windows rolled up, no shade and the doors unlocked for over 10 minutes.

Einhaus was tracked down Tuesday and arrested for the misdemeanor of endangering the life or health of a child. She was given a court date.
