Sleeping children found in parked car

A Sandusky County couple was arrested Friday evening after they left two small children sleeping in their unlocked car in a Walmart parking lot, according to a Perkins police report. Kaila Greathouse, 23, 100 block Nelson St., Clyde, and Terry Green, 25, 600 block Sunset Lane, Fremont, were both charged with child endangering.

Green was also charged with marijuana possession, as officers found a joint in the car he was driving. When a good Samaritan spotted Green’s trunk open around 7 p.m., she went to close it and found two girls, 3 and 1, sleeping in the back seat, the report said.

Walmart employees paged the car’s owner, and Green met up with police 16 minutes later by the car.

He said he and Greathouse just ran in to use the bathroom, but later said she was inside getting her eyebrows done at the salon, according to the police report. Officers informed Sandusky County social workers, and the couple was released on their own recognizance.
