A 21-year-old La Vista woman has been arrested, accused of leaving her 3-year-old son and 9-month-old twins in a home alone, so she could go drinking. Officers arrested 21-year-old Michelle Polan on Saturday night on suspicion of felony child abuse.

Police say Polan lied to them before admitting she left the 3 children alone in her sister's basement to go drinking all day. Police says Polan's sister called them after discovering the children had been left alone.

Polan's case has not yet been listed on Sarpy County's online court docket, and no public phone listing for her could be found.
