North Carolina

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A Fayetteville mother faces child abuse charges after police found two of her children locked in the cargo compartment of a cargo truck.

Arrest reports show 28-year-old Sheena Marie Young was arrested Saturday after police were called to the parking lot of a Target store.

Multiple media organizations reported that while officers were questioning Young from her seat behind the wheel, they investigated sounds coming from inside the locked cargo compartment. Officers found Young’s 4-year-old and 8-year-old children inside the very hot cargo space.

Young also was charged with trespassing.
