In Saint Mary Parish, 27-year-old Susana Hernandez of Bayou Vista was charged with two counts of criminal abandonment January 29th.
Early Sunday morning, the sheriff's office received an anonymous tip about two children left at home without supervision.
Deputies went to Hernandez's home and found a six-year-old boy and a nine-year old girl alone at the residence.
The children were turned over to the office of child services.
Hernandez was later located and taken into custody for questioning where she admitted to knowingly leaving her children at home unattended.
