Oklahoma City police have discovered an infant in the back seat of a car buried beneath items they believe were stolen in home burglaries. Police arrested the baby girl's mother and another man early Monday after finding the infant.

Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says an officer first spotted the car parked illegally. Two people were inside the vehicle, but the officer saw the woman walk away from the car toward a house.

Wardlow says a 7-month-old girl was later discovered in the back seat of the car, covered by two strollers and a large toy.

Police say the pair was arrested on complaints of receiving and concealing stolen property. The mother also faces an additional complaint of child abandonment.
