CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

Crockett Police officers arrested a 27-year-old woman on an abandoning a child charge Tuesday after she allegedly left her 3-year-old nephew alone at her home for an extended period of time.

Robvia Leneice Simpson, of Crockett, was charged with abandoning or endangering a child, which is a state-jail felony. She was transported to the Houston County Jail.

According to a press release, Crockett PD officers were dispatched to Simpson's residence in the 100 block of Lewis Circle at about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday morning in reference to a 3-year-old child being left alone.

When they arrived on the scene, they met with a Housing Authority security officer, who said the boy was asleep inside the home on Lewis Circle. No one else was in the house, according to the arrest affidavit.

The security officer told the police officers that she had seen Simpson on Rose Street around 8 a.m. Tuesday.

A Child Protective Services investigator arrived on the scene a short time later. She told the police officer that CPS had recently placed Simpson's nephew in her custody.

Forty minutes after the Crockett PD officers arrived on the scene, Simpson returned home. She was detained and placed in a patrol vehicle. When one of the officers asked her where she had been, she explained that she had given her cousin a ride and had only been gone about an hour.

While Simpson was speaking to the CPS investigator on the scene, she said that she had left around 7:30 a.m. She also said that her 12-year-old was at home with the 3-year-old, but he had left for school.
