Mom Planned to Be Way for Ten Days
A mom from Johnston, Iowa was arrested on Thursday after she left her four kids home alone to go on a trip to Germany. She left her kids ALONE while she went away for what would’ve been a week. How did she expect her children to take care of themselves?!
On Sept. 21, Johnston police were called to Erin Lee Macke’s apartment after receiving a tip that young children were left unsupervised in the house.
When police arrived at the home, they found four children including two 12 year-olds, a seven-year-old and a six-year-old.
The children told police, “Mom left them and left the country,” police said.
Police say that Macke had left the country the day before (on September 20th), and was en route to Germany. She wasn’t planning to return home until October 1st.
“Oh, I think I’ll just take a trip – my 12-year-olds can look after my 6 and 7 year olds, no problem!” Who does that?!
