BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A woman faces charges after authorities say she left her young son in the backseat of a BMW while she shopped at a Palm Beach County supermarket.

Boynton Beach police say Gladys S. Huiza of Deerfield Beach was arrested Tuesday after someone saw him inside the vehicle and called 911.

The Palm Beach Post reports police officers found the 1-year-old boy inside the locked car in the Publix parking lot. They checked the supermarket's surveillance video and found the woman left the child alone for 17 minutes.

Huiza is charged with child neglect and released on a $4,500 bond. It's not known whether she has an attorney.

Police say the woman shouted "it was only 10 minutes" when she saw officers at her car.
