The mother of three children under the age of 7 purportedly had gotten intoxicated and left her little ones at home alone while she went out to eat at a restaurant in the middle of the night.
Blanca Baltazar, 32, is the mom of a 3-year-old and two 7-year-olds, and they live together in a home in Katy, Texas.
Very early Sunday morning, Baltazar allegedly decided to grab a bite to eat at a restaurant in Cypress, which is approximately 22 miles from Katy.
While Baltazar was allegedly in the eatery, local deputies received notification that the woman reportedly said she was unable to locate her children.
After locating and making contact with Baltazar, the deputies noted that they believed she was in a highly drunken state.
It was reported by the Constable’s Office that the deputies with Baltazar tried to assess the situation with regards to the possible missing kids. With the information they collected, the deputies deduced that the children were left at their home in Katy without supervision.
Baltazar was taken into custody and booked into the county jail where she was charged for allegations of child abandonment. She was also issued a $1,500 bond by the District Court.
