A New Jersey couple was arrested on Saturday after cops say they left their three children unattended in a vehicle while they gambled at a suburban Philadelphia casino.
FOX29 reported that cops say Jarrett Evan Nelson and Ebony Walker "left three children, aged 1, 3 and 8, in the car for one hour and 38 minutes." The Newark couple was allegedly gambling inside Bensalem's Parx Casino.
The Bucks County Courier-Times added that cops discovered the children after receiving a "report of three children left inside a Dodge Journey that was not running."
Fred Harran, Bensalem Director of Public Safety, told 6ABC, "They were there for about an hour and a half. Through video and a few other leads, we were able to track down the parents and take them into custody."
According to FOX29, the couple was charged with Endangering the Welfare of Children and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.
