Mom arrested for leaving kids home alone

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico County mother is facing charges of leaving her two young kids home alone.

Robyn Forbes, 32, was arrested early Saturday on two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police say Forbes "went out" the night before, leaving her kids -- ages 10 and 2 -- home by themselves.

When police were called, they say Forbes was "passed out" in a neighbor's apartment.

The children were later turned over to another family member.
