KILLEEN -

A Killeen woman was arrested after police say she left her three kids home alone while she went to pick up a cell phone.

Iasha Arznda Ford was charged with three counts of abandoning or endangering a child without intent to return and her bond has been set at $100,000.

Officers were dispatched to Ford's house for a possible choking child on August 17 at 6:20 p.m. The home is located in the 1900 block of Wrightway in Killeen.

Police say, when they arrived on the scene, there were three small children left alone in the home. The children were 6-years-old, 3-years-old and 9-months-old.

The 6-year-old called 911 after the child noticed the 9-month-old had swallowed something and got scared that he would choke.

According to police, the children were turned over to CPS when police found them alone. When Ford returned home, she found that her children were gone and called the police.

Ford was arrested and she told police that she had gone to pick up a cell phone.
