HUEYTOWN, AL – According to Hueytown Police, a baby was mistakenly left in a vehicle at the Hueytown Walmart on July 17.
The baby appeared to be in good health, according to officers.
Around 12:56 p.m., police were called to 1007 Red Farmer Drive for a complaint of an infant left in a vehicle. When cops arrived on the scene, it was discovered that two family members had exited the vehicle, leaving the baby with two other family members inside.
Those two family members thought the other two family members had taken the newborn inside the store and exited the vehicle.
