4 students accused of sexual assault of 15-year-old Iowa boy

Macke allegedly told police she could not find babysitters for her children.

They learned that the day before, the 30-year-old mother had left her children at home alone to travel to Germany, and didn't arrange for anyone to take care of them.

Police discovered that Macke left the USA a day earlier and wasn't set to return until October 1, the Register reported. "Obviously being out of the country and unavailable for your children is not recommend and not something we want to encourage parents to do, but it's up to their own judgment for as far as when it's okay for them to leave their children at home alone", she said.

She allegedly told police she would be out of the US until Sunday. She was arrested on her return. She didn't plan on returning until October 1, but police contacted her and told her she needed to return to the USA immediately.

She has been charged with four counts of child endangerment and one charge of making a firearm available to a person under the age of 21.

Erin Lee Macke is seen in this booking photo released from City of Johnston, Iowa, U.S. on September 29, 2017.

"I've never heard of anything like this before", Johnston police Lt. Tyler Tompkins told CBS affiliate KCCI.

The children are staying with family members.

Iowa state law does not specify any age or time limit for leaving children alone, but parents must provide for their children's safety, said Amy McCoy, spokeswoman for the Iowa Department of Human Services.

It's a situation that still boggles Tompkins' mind. She remained in custody on Friday, according to Polk County Jail records.
