CLEAR LAKE, TX – After she allegedly left four young children alone so she could go find cigarettes, a Clear Lake woman faces child endangerment charges.

A couple deputies patrolling the Clear Lake area on Monday night saw two toddlers by themselves in a home’s front yard and noticed the door was open. When they stopped to check on the kids, they quickly found there were no adults home at the time. When Brittany Florence returned later, deputies arrested her. Not only is she accused of leaving the kids – all between the ages of 1 and 4 – by themselves, deputies say the home was unsafe and the conditions were deplorable.
