Home alone in Mineral Wells, with an anonymous call coming in just in time.

That call came to police just after 6:30 Sunday night from a neighbor regarding children possibly home alone.

When police arrived at 6858 Pike Street they say they found a 5-year-old girl and 1-year-old twins in the apartment alone.

24-year-old Amber Moneypenny returned home to be arrested on the spot for child neglect that could result in injury or death.

Police say they can't release what was dangerous in the apartment at this time.

Moneypenny was arraigned and unable to post her $150,000 bond - $50,000 per child.

Authorities say the children are okay and are staying with grandparents.
