Iowa Woman Abandons Her Four Kids To Go To Germany
Her name is Erin Macke. She's from Johnston. I have only one question for her? WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!
Macke, 30, of Johnston, left for Germany (GERMANY) on September 20. Authorities allege she left all four of her kids home alone, without supervision. Her children are 12, 12, 7, and 6. But, hey, she apparently gave them a gun, just in case!
The next day, Johnston police received a call that kids were in the home, unsupervised. After confirming this, police called Macke and told her to get home. They later found out she had left September 20 and was not scheduled back until October 1.
Macke was arrested Thursday and is being held in the Polk County Jail. According to the Des Moines Register, she faces "four counts of child endangerment and one count of making a firearm available to a person under the age of 21.
She's not yet been convicted, but the Iowa Department of Human Services has custody of her children.
