Woman leaves 4 kids at home, goes on European vacation

Woman leaves 4 kids at home, goes on European vacation”

An Iowa mother was arrested Thursday, charged with leaving her four young children at home while she traveled to Europe. Upon arriving, officers found four children - two 12-year-olds, a 7-year-old and a 6-year-old - alone.

The incident allegedly took place on September 8th at the home of 18-year-old Morgan Hough.

Macke was contacted by police while she was in Germany and ordered to return. She did not arrange any supervision for the children, authorities said.

Authorities said they convinced Macke to return to the United States before October 1. When she arrived back in Iowa on Wednesday she was taken into custody by police and charged with four counts of Child Endangerment.

"While all of these (teens) are Johnston (High) School students...this event did not happen at the school or a school sponsored event", Tompkins told reporters at a news conference.

Receiving a tip from the father of one of the children, police checked in on the children and called the Department of Human Services, who then placed the children with other family members. Macke is also facing an additional charge of making a firearm available to a person under the age of 21.

It's like a real-life version of the movie "Home Alone", except in this case, the children were purposely left behind.

Lt. Tompkins says this was a first for his department, "We have situations where parents go next door, or parents may go out for the night, and while that's not advisable either depending on the age of the children, obviously leaving the country is a totally different situation".
