RENO, Nev. – A Nevada woman is jailed on allegations of neglecting her toddler daughters after police say she went to a bar and left her 1-year-old in a stroller outside and her 2-year-old at home alone.
Reno police say 41-year-old Christine Yvette Lobe was arrested late Wednesday at a bar on suspicion of two counts of child endangerment or neglect. Officers responded after patrons reported a child was outside wearing only an infant bodysuit.
Police allege Lobe left her sleeping 2-year-old at her apartment and walked to the nearby bar to have drinks. They say she took her 1-year-old daughter along but left her outside.
Police found the 1-year-old around midnight; it was unclear how long she'd been outside. Temperatures in Reno fell to the low 30s Wednesday.
A Washoe County sheriff's official said Thursday Lobe declined to comment and doesn't have an attorney.
The girls have been placed with their father.
