DELTONA -- A South Florida man was arrested Sunday afternoon when it was discovered that he had left a 4-year-old boy alone in his Toyota Camry rental for at least 13 minutes while he went into a grocery store.

Shelton Cover, 32, of Hollywood, was charged with leaving a child younger than 6 unattended, a felony.
The boy was unharmed and turned over to his mother who was called to the scene by deputies. A concerned citizen saw Cover get out of his vehicle in the parking lot of the Publix at about 2:39 p.m. Cover went into the store, leaving the boy in the back seat alone Haught said.
