CHANDLER, Ariz. - A mother is behind bars after she left her baby in her car in the parking lot at Chandler Fashion Center.

Savannah Greene reported to a Dillard's security officer that she had lost her 2-year-old child at the mall.

The security officer was an off-duty Maricopa County sheriff's deputy.

Chandler police were called after the officer discovered that the child was in fact with her father in Gilbert and had not been at the mall with her mother.

However, when officers checked Greene's car, they found that she had left her 2-month-old baby inside with the windows rolled up.

The child was checked out by Chandler Fire personnel and found to be OK.

The mother appeared to be intoxicated and was taken into police custody. She was booked on child abuse and neglect charges.
