UPDATE: Mom Charged With Leaving Baby In Shopping Cart

According to NBC10, the couple who found the baby said Hall "showed no emotion for her child."

On Feb. 5, arrested Loretta Hall, 30, of the 1600 block of Durham Road in Middletown, charging her with endangering the welfare of a child and recklessly endangering another person after Hall allegedly left her 1-year-old baby girl alone in the cold in a shopping cart on a grassy area separating a Bensalem apartment complex and a shopping center.

Hall was arraigned before District Judge Robert Wagner and sent to Bucks County prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The baby was treated at St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown and is now in the custody of the Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency.

According to police, two residents of the Bucks Meadows Apartments on Knights Road saw the baby alone and crying in a shopping cart at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday. While one person cared for the baby, the other walked around the complex trying to find the little girl’s parent. After five to 10 minutes, they found Hall.

According to NBC10, the couple who found the baby said Hall "showed no emotion for her child."

Bensalem police said the baby was “very cold to the touch” and was not dressed for the 35 degree temperature outside. Investigation found that Hall consumed alcohol and was taking Klonopin pills the previous night and into Sunday morning. Police said she appeared visibly intoxicated.

"Children are not luggage," Besalem police Sgt. Andrew Aninsman told NBC10. "They're human beings who need the care of their parents. In this situation the mother did not care for the child like she should have."

Again Yrrep you make me laugh!! I don't "change stories", but simply tell it like it is. As I said before, all you have is immature personal attacks, and cowardly false accusations. You are the one with the multiple personalities, if you think that I am falling for ANY of your intimidation tactics, and that includes your mentioning of "PF". I haven't mentioned him in any way shape or form, but you and your corrupt bosses have. I also love your spelling issues. As I said before, It doesn't matter if anyone else is there with me or not. I will be and so will the Lord!! It may not be tonight, but I will be there, and NOT to amuse you.

Wendy, Wendy I knew you where not going to show up. I watched anyway just in case you got the nerve to come, but as always you couldn't face the township council. You will be glad to know the birds enjoyed the popcorn and they thank you. Wendy you might want to know that I heard through the grapevine that their is an investigation going on and it involves YOU. You asked how do I know well a group of concerned citizens left a note on my doorstep this morning after i had a very busy day. I can't go into details but its a good one gang. Does this sound familiar? Now Wendy you have to make a promise that you will be there on the 27th.But I'm sure you won't. Why don't you respond? rocket got your tong. don't leave me this way, your fans await
