Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A woman is arrested after allegedly leaving her children home alone to go to the store to buy milk.  Police say 22-year-old Monica Zarco Olvera went to Kwik Star over the weekend while her one-year-old and three-year-old stayed home.

When she returned, her daughters were gone.  Zarco told officers she usually keeps the apartment unlocked, because she lost her keys.  The kids were later found with her husband after he saw they were home alone.

Zarco is facing charges of child endangerment.
