Springfield Woman Sentenced For Stealing Car With Kids Inside

By Jason Rima. CREATED Mar 28, 2014

It's 10 years in prison for a woman who stole a car with two kids inside outside a grocery store in Springfield last March.

Springfield police say a man left his kids in the car with the keys in the ignition while he ran inside the store.  

38-year-old Cynthia Brown from Springfield took off with the car, prompting an Amber Alert.  

Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson says Brown let out a four-year-old boy in a residential neighborhood, and abandoned the car at some apartments with 14-month-old Harmony Blue still inside.

Family members found the car with the little girl.

Temperatures dropped to 29 degrees while the kids were missing.

But the children were not hurt.
