DeKalb police have arrested
29-year-old Bernadette Hester, who they said left her seven kids alone in a motel room over the weekend while she went to Miami.
said she left the kids ranging from 3 months old to 10 at the Extended Stay Motel on Crescent Centre Parkway.
“It’s very upsetting; I think the oldest is 10,” a hotel resident told Channel 2’s Ryan Young.
DeKalb police got calls from motel
management saying they needed help because they found the room full of kids with no food.
“After we got in the room and talked to the kids, the oldest one, being 10, advised us how we could get in touch with the mother,” said DeKalb police Capt. Michael
