CHARLEROI, Pa. —
A 6-year-old girl was left abandoned on the side of a Washington County road over the weekend after her mother’s plan to rob an area Walmart failed.
According to police, Crystal Ross, 28, of Charleroi, and Harvey Hall, a known felon in Washington County with an extensive criminal history, robbed a Walmart and tried to return the goods for money.
Authorities said Ross was trying to return about $127 worth of car parts when she was caught and admitted to conspiring to steal from Walmart.
When police arrested Ross, Hall fled the scene with Ross’s 6-year-old daughter in the car.
According to the criminal complaint, Hall drove about four miles away to Maple Avenue where he abandoned the car and 6-year-old girl.
Two people walking by the car found the girl crying on the sidewalk and alerted police.
Upon arrival, officers found a crack pipe in the car.
Detectives are still looking for Hall and said a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
Officials said Ross will be charged by summons in the mail.
