Warrant issued for woman charged with leaving kids in hot car while shopping for swimsuits at Target

BEMIDJI – A warrant has been issued for a former Bagley woman accused of child endangerment.

Bianca Jean Hazelrigg, 21, failed to appear Monday before Beltrami County District Judge Paul Benshoof for an omnibus hearing. A warrant for her arrest was issued that day for failure to appear.

That warrant was still in effect Wednesday afternoon, according to Beltrami County court administration.

Hazelrigg, who lived in Bagley but now lives in St. Cloud according to her Facebook page, is charged with gross misdemeanor endangerment of a child by putting them in a position that could cause them harm or death.

Court documents state Hazelrigg left four children unattended June 9 inside her car in 88-degree temperatures for 29 minutes as she shopped inside the Bemidji Target for swimsuits.

Hazelrigg posted bail in June with the conditions that that she not leave Minnesota without written court approval, keep the court and her attorney informed of her current address, remain law-abiding and make all future court appearances.

In her last court appearance July 9, Hazelrigg was allowed to move back into the home she shared with her boyfriend, who was caring for the four children. The two youngest, 2-year-old twins, are biologically Hazelrigg’s children.
