    Police have arrested a Bristol woman who is accused of leaving children alone in a car.

    Bristol police have charged a 38-year-old woman who is accused of leaving children alone in a car as she went into a local Walgreens on Wednesday night.

    Police responded to the pharmacy at 25 Main Street around 8:20 p.m. after someone contacted them about children being left alone in a parked car, according to a news release from police, and found a 9- and a 7-year-old child in the car.

    Police arrested Regina Curtis, 38, of Bristol, and charged her with two counts of leaving a child unattended in a public place or motor vehicle.

    She was released on a $2,500.00 non-surety bond and is due in court on July 28.

    Police said two witnesses helped police in the investigation, but did not elaborate on how. 

    The children were not hurt.

    It is not clear if she has an attorney.
