Three young children were found drinking vodka inside a Gaston County apartment after their mother left them alone for more than seven hours, an arrest warrant details.
Their mother is now facing charges.
According to the arrest warrant, the children, ages 4, 5, and 7, were found alone inside the apartment Monday evening. Tyeisha Streater, 26, is accused of leaving her children alone for at least seven hours without any supervision.
