A mother has been booked into the Metro jail after allegedly leaving her children in the car while she went shopping at the Dickerson Pike Walmart on Wednesday morning.

The mother was gone for about 15 minutes, according to police, and allegedly left two small children in the back seat. When she returned to the car, she found police waiting for her.

The mother told police the children were sick and that she did not want to take them inside because they didn't feel well.
