Lydia LaShelle Young came home to find a cop waiting for her.
He had been there for an hour and a half on Thursday night and wanted to know why she'd left five children alone in the home, according to a Delray Beach police arrest report.
Police had received a call at about 11 p.m. about an apparent case of child neglect involving five children being left alone for long periods of time, the report said.
An officer went to a Delray Beach address and knocked on the door. There was no answer, but he saw a small child moving through different rooms and turning off the lights, police said.
