Authorities say a North Miami woman left her two grandchildren alone in a car while she was gambling.

Hallandale Beach police say 53-year-old Jeanne Shahan left the children unattended inside a car parked outside Mardi Gras Gaming on Tuesday.

A witness saw the 2-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy in the car and told the casino's security.

Shahan was arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect without great harm. She was later released on $2,000 bail.
