Authorities are urging residents to be wary of rising temperatures and the harm that can come to children and pets left inside vehicles. A 9-year-old Hanover County child needed to be checked out by emergency responders and his mother was arrested on felony child neglect charges Sunday after a passerby noticed the child in distress inside a parked car. 31 year old, Megan Toomey is scheduled to be arraigned in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court May 21.
