      A Brownsville man and woman are facing criminal charges after taking two children along for a ride during a mini-crime spree.

      Brownsville police arrested 22-year-old Lydia Gay and 37-year-old Agustin Castillo on auto burglary and child endangerment charges.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that the two shattered the window of a car parked outside the Texas Roadhouse restaurant to steal a purse.

      Police said the pair then went to a nearby gas station and started charging on a stolen credit card.

      Officers were arresting the two when they saw Gay TMs two children in the backseat of the pair TMs car.
