Today's blotter on page 3A includes a police investigation of a woman who left her toddler in a Toyota Rav4 on Monday morning when she went to work inside the Mesa County Justice Center.

Fortunately, someone heard the child crying and called the police who were able to track down the mother inside the courthouse. The baby was fine and the mother was aghast that she had forgotten about her child. The police chose not to break out the windows because the child didn't seem in danger.

According to the police report, the child was unattended in the car for about 35 minutes.
