ALPHARETTA, Ga., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- An Atlanta-area woman has been charged with leaving her 15-month-old twins alone while she went shopping.

Patricia Schmitt, 47, was charged with reckless conduct, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday.

Alpharetta police said an officer responding to a tip went to Schmitt's home Friday. He found the twins asleep and no one else in the house.

Schmitt allegedly told police she had given a neighbor a baby monitor and asked her to check on the toddlers, but the neighbor denied having a monitor.

"She also stated that she does this periodically and sees nothing wrong with this practice," the police report said.
