ATLANTA - Atlanta police say a woman accused of leaving her four young children in a locked SUV has been charged with four counts of reckless conduct.

Atlanta police spokesman Greg Lyon says police were called to a shopping center in southwest Atlanta Monday afternoon on a call about four children - ages 6, 4, 2 and 1 - who were left in an unattended SUV.

Lyon says the children's 27-year-old mother had been shopping at a grocery store for up to 20 minutes when police arrived.

Lyon says the children were evaluated at the scene but didn't need medical treatment. Lyon says the children are now in their grandmother's custody and the woman is being held at the Fulton County Jail.
