CONWAY, SC (WBTW) - A Conway woman in jail on fraudulent check charges received additional charges after police said she left children home alone while she was in jail.

According to a Conway police report, Robin Michelle Kearns, 35, left three children ages 14, 11, and 6 home alone in a residence without electricity on October 14.

Kearns left a note for the children telling the 14-year-old to take care of the other children while she was away and to "not tell her family what was going on because she didn't want them knowing her business," the report said.

A relative found out about Kearns' arrest on October 15 via the internet and went to check on the children, the report said.

Kearns is currently in being held at the J Reuben Long Detention Center. She is charged with 9 counts of fraudulent checks, 4 counts of contempt of family court and unlawful neglect of a child.
