An Odessa woman has been arrested for leaving her three young children at home for almost 2 hours.

Police say 24-year-old Crystal Carrasco left her 4, 3 and 1-year-old at home as she took her daughter to school and went grocery shopping.

Officers were called to Carrasco's home after the 4-year-old opened the door to the visitor and a child could be heard crying in the background.

The 1-year-old was naked in a crib crying, the 3-year-old had a soiled diaper on, and the 4-year-old had an open bottle of antacids.

Carrasco is charged with three counts of Abandoning or Endangering a Child.

CPS was notified.
