A passerby saw the toddler alone in the car after dark last night on East Ridgewood Avenue near Cottage Placeand immediately summoned Ridgewood police, Detective Chris McDowell.

Police arrested 31-year-old Jessica Kelly of Wyckoff and charged her with child neglect and possession of marijuana after the 6 p.m. call came in.

She was released pending an initial Municipal Court hearing.

Police notified the state Department of Youth and Family Services, which is conducting its own investigation.
