A 45-year-old Sterling woman faces felony charges after her three children were found home alone.
The children, all under age 9, were found in a home on East Poplar Drive. According to the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office, they were in a room with “minimal food.” Deputies worked with Loudoun County Child Protective Services to locate the mother, Santos M. Serrano-Flores.
On April 7, she was arrested and charged with three counts of felony abuse and neglect of children. In addition, Serrano-Flores was served with two misdemeanor warrants for domestic assault stemming from a prior incident. She was held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
