SPRING, Texas — Precinct 4 constable deputies arrested a mother of 4 Sunday after they found her kids alone in a Spring apartment.

Deputies said they were called to the apartment complex in the 16200 block of Stuebner Airline Road after a woman claimed she found a 2-year-old walking around the complex for nearly an hour. The child was wearing only a dirty diaper.

The kid’s mother was contacted, and when she arrived home deputies learned she left her children unattended for more than eight hours.

CPS was called and the children were released to a family member.

The mother was identified as 22-year-old Keamira Roney.
