FORT MILL, S.C. (AP) — Police say a couple broke into a theme park that was closed for the offseason near the South Carolina-North Carolina line, and the woman told investigators that God and aliens directed her there.
York County sheriff's deputies told local media outlets that Francis Greene and Jason Lee were arrested Friday night after a security officer at the Carowinds theme park found their truck abandoned in the parking lot. The officer also found an 8-month-old boy alone in the truck.
The guard said the couple returned to the truck 20 minutes after leaving it.
Greene is charged with child neglect, filing a false police report and trespassing. Lee is charged with child neglect and trespassing. It was not clear whether they had attorneys.
The baby was taken into protective custody.
