A Johnston County mother is facing charges after her children were found wandering the street without adult supervision.

When police arrived at the scene, they found four children -- all under the age of five -- home alone.

Police arrested their mother, 35-year-old Evelyn Fernandez, after she returned home. Police say she was gone for an hour-and-a-half. Two of the children were not hers, and she was supposed to be babysitting. Those children were returned to their mother.

Fernandez's children are in the custody of social services.

She's facing several child neglect charges, including contributing to the delinquency of a child.
