ODESSA - An Odessa woman got into hot water for leaving her children alone with drugs in plain sight.
Officers found a 12-year-old girl and an eight year old boy at the Sedona Springs Apartments on Saturday afternoon.
The kids told police their mother, 32-year-old Crystal Osborn, had left the night before to go out with friends and they hadn't seen her since.
Officers also found cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside a bedroom and bathroom.
Osborn returned to the apartment while police were there.
She was arrested for felony child abandonment charges.
The children were released to their father.
