ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 22-year-old St. Petersburg woman left four young children home alone while she went clubbing in Tampa.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says Priscilla Vazquez was arrested on child neglect charges on Tuesday. Deputies say she admitted to leaving the children — ages 2, 4, 6 and 8 — home alone on Sunday night.

The Tampa Bay Times reports someone discovered the children were alone about mid-day on Monday. Vazquez, who also goes by the last name Delgado, came home about 9 p.m. Monday.

Deputies say Vazquez told them she didn't have a ride home.

She was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Wednesday. A phone number for Vazquez wasn't available.

An investigation continues.
