PALMETTO, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A Florida couple was arrested early Sunday for allegedly leaving their 4-year-old child in their car as they went inside a Tampa Bay area strip club.

Police reports indicate that Israel Rangel-Ortiz and Edith Aguilar-Cardona entered Pandora’s Box at around 1:15 a.m. WTSP reports that Rangel-Ortiz, 25, ordered drinks and bought a lap dance from an entertainer. When police arrived to the scene, Aguilar-Cardona, 25, told them that although she had also been inside, the couple had planned on returning to the car. The child is now with a family relative.

Rangel-Ortiz and Aguilar-Cardona have been charged with child neglect without great harm. They are both being held on $5,000 bond each at Manatee County Jail, according to jail records.
