Man left child alone in running, unlocked car, police say


A Lancaster County man was arrested after police say he left a 4-year-old child alone in a vehicle that was unlocked and running in a store parking lot.

Adriano Bistel-Cruz, 21, of Columbia, also left marijuana in the vehicle and within reach of the child, and he did not have a proper child safety seat, Manheim Township police said in a news release.

Bistel-Cruz is charged with a felony count of endangering the welfare of a child and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana regarding the incident Wednesday in the 800 block of Plaza Boulevard.

He was released Thursday after posting $2,500 bail, according to court records.
