FLORENCE, S.C. — A Florence woman faces two charges after allegedly leaving two children in her car outside Sam’s Club.

On Wednesday, Florence Police officers responded to a complaint of children left alone in a vehicle in the parking lot of the store on Beltline Drive. Once on the scene, officers located two children alone in an unattended vehicle.

Maya Salters, the children’s family member, later returned to the vehicle.

Salters was charged with two counts of unlawful conduct toward a child and was transported to the Florence County Detention Center.

Unlawful conduct toward a child is a felony offense and carries a penalty of up to 10 years in jail, a fine in the discretion of the court, or both.

No information on Salters’ bond was available Wednesday.

The children were evaluated on the scene by EMS and released to their mother.
