NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A woman was arrested Saturday night after she allegedly left three young children inside a car in a Walmart parking lot.

Witnesses reported the incident to security around 9 p.m. at the business on Dickerson Pike.

According to authorities, the children, two two-year-olds and one four-year-old, were left inside the car with the keys still in the ignition.

Veronica Lewis, 49, reportedly told officers she was inside for “just a minute.”

Surveillance video, however, showed she was inside the Walmart for at least 45 minutes.

Lewis now faces three counts of felony child neglect.

She was booked into the Metro jail on $15,000 bond.

It wasn't immediately clear if the children belong to Lewis.
