Mom of 5 jailed for leaving them home alone

Posted: Updated:

A Dallas mother faces five charges of endangering a child after police said she left her children alone for hours.

Carlisha Cavit's five children range in ages from 8 years old to a baby. Her 3-year-old is believed to be blind.

While responding to an unrelated burglary call on Monday, police found the three oldest children in an apartment complex parking lot off Bruton Road.

While officers waited for Child Protective Services, the 26-year-old mother came home saying she'd been running errands for the last five hours.

The children are now with a relative.
