Woman arrested, one at-large after leaving daughter behind during ER theft

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A 29-year-old woman is in custody and another is at-large after the woman left her 12-year-old daughter behind as she stole from the Providence Health Center Emergency Room.

Waco police say they were called to Providence Monday night after a doctor noticed two women taking medical supplies from an ER treatment room. The two women were there with a 12-year-old girl.

The items that were being stolen include: gloves, gauze, saline solution, and an oxygen sensor.

The doctor called security, and when they arrived, one of the women fled, leaving her daughter behind. The girl is now in the custody of CPS.

Police are still searching for one woman, who will face charges of theft and abandoning a child.
