Texarkana Couple Arrested on Child Abandonment Charges

    Responding to an anonymous 911 call last night, Texarkana Texas Police found 6 children ranging in age from 7 years to 11 months alone and hungry. When questioned, one of the children said their parents were at a nearby laundry mat.

    Upon arrival at the laundry, officers found 23-year old Eshaun Johnson and 28-year old Marca Harris playing video games.  Johnson returned to the house but Harris, identified as the mother refused.  Both parties were then arrested and charged with Child Abandonment and Endangerment and are in the Bi-State Jail in lieu of 75 thousand dollars bond each.  The children were turned over to Child Protective Services.
