A woman in South Carolina was charged with neglect after she allowed her two children to walk a mile to a store while she took a nap.
The Herald of Rock Hill reported that the 27-year-old Candace Amber Cole was being held in the York County Jail on two counts of child neglect.
Police say that the woman’s 5-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son walked from their home to a gas station while she was sleeping.
A store employee flagged down a cop.
The report says that the children told the cop that they had gone to the store to pick up toilet paper. When the police arrived at their home, they found the door open and Cole was asleep.
The children are currently under the care of their grandmother.
