A Sanford woman was arrested on allegations of repeatedly leaving her children home alone.

Latoya Rolle was arrested Tuesday on charges of child neglect.

According to Sanford police, Rolle left her children, ages 9, 6 and 1, home alone on a regular basis.  Police also said the children had limited access to food.

Police said an investigation began when a caller reported that the children were home alone.  The caller said he or she wanted to remain anonymous over concerns of retaliation, police said.

The children have temporarily been placed with a relative, according to police.
