A pair of South Carolina parents left their 5-year-old child in a just-above-freezing car while they stole sex toys for Valentine’s Day.
24-year-old Amanda Nicole Savage and 26-year-old Gary Lee Savage got caught shoplifting the toys, as well as lube, from Priscillaâ€™s Lingerie Store in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Sunday.
The couple from Elberton, Georgia were cuffed by Myrtle Beach police and the officers found the child locked in their car. As a result, they now face shoplifting and child cruelty charges.
Officials say that staff told them the child was in the car “for a while” as the couple browsed around the shop. A security sensor set off an alarm when they tried to exit the store, catching them red-handed.
Police say their car looked like the family was living in it.
