Babysitter leaves kids alone in house to go home and sleep
A babysitter in Florida is accused of leaving three young children home alone for more than 2 and a half hours.
Jeanne Burns, 59, was arrested Thursday on charges of child neglect.
One of the abandoned children called 911 after Burns left the home, WESH reported.
The kids ranged in age from 5 to 8 years old.
Deputies said when they arrived at the home, the children refused to let them in.
A fourth child showed up and turned over Burns’ phone number, according to the report.
Investigators said that Burns’ — who was supposed to be in charge — told the kids she left to go to Walgreens, WESH reported. But she later admitted to going to her own home to sleep.
The children’s mother, who was at work, was called back to the home, investigators said.
