ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) -

A Macomb Co. baby sitter has been arrested after police say 26-year-old Natalie Krisfalusi crashed a car taken without permission from a home where she was supposed to be baby sitting an infant.

Oakland County sheriff's deputies found the child unharmed early Saturday. The baby's mother came home from work to find herself locked out of the Rochester Hills home and the car missing.

She called the baby sitter's cell phone, which was answered by a Farmington Hills police officer who told her the sitter had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The mother then found out that her son wasn't with the baby sitter.

Sheriff's deputies then forced entry into the woman's house, where they found the baby inside all alone. Also found was a half-empty bottle of prescription pills.

The baby sitter is from Sterling Heights. The mother tells Fox 2 Krisfalusi was recommended to her, but no one ever mentioned a history of drug abuse.

Toxicology reports are expected later this month. After her arraignment in Oakland County, she was arraigned in Rochester Hills charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and child abuse in the 4th degree. Krisfalusi is being held on $25,000 bond.
