BISMARCK, N.D. - A 30-year-old Bismarck woman has been arrested for leaving two children home alone.

Bismarck police say Nicole Sanders left the 9 and 11-year-old home alone over the weekend.

Police say they got a tip from an employee at an elementary school.

One of the children involved reportedly told an officer that he couldn't go to school because he couldn't find a pair shoes.
