Mom Arrested After 3 Toddlers Left Alone

HOUSTON - A Houston woman has been accused of going to work at a bar and leaving her three toddlers home alone after the children were found eating food dumped in the trash.

Harris County jail records show 22-year-old Kimberly Rodriguez was being held Wednesday on child endangerment charges. No attorney was listed for Rodriguez, whose bond was set at $35,000.

Child Protective Services took custody of the children - ages 3, 2 and 1 - after the siblings were found last weekend wandering outside at an apartment complex.

CPS spokeswoman Estella Olguin says neighbors saw the children going through some garbage and eating items like banana peels. Neighbors called police after nobody was home at the children's apartment.

Police located Rodriguez last Friday night at the bar where she works.
