Mother arrested for leaving kids home alone for 45 minutes

Posted: Updated:

A mother was arrested after police say she left her two children, ages 8 and 9, alone for 45 minutes while she went to pick up dinner.

55-year-old Susan Terrillion is facing two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of her children on Tuesday.  The family was vacationing at Rehobeth Beach, Delaware when Terillion said she needed to drive five miles away to pick up food she ordered for her children. 

A nearby vacationer reportedly called police when he saw the two children outside by themselves and they told him they were home alone. 

Terillion was arrested as soon as she returned to the beach rental home.  She was released on $500 unsecured bail.
