The mother of a three year-old child is being charged after she left her child in a running vehicle that was stolen from an Atlanta laundromat Wednesday night.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. at the Spincycle Landromat on Moreland Avenue in southeast Atlanta.

Hood has been arrested and charged with reckless conduct. She was released from jail Wednesday morning after posting bond.

The child and vehicle were released to a family member.

No word on the suspects who stole the vehicle.
