Police in Muncie, Indiana received an anonymous tip earlier this week about two boys, ages seven and four, who were left at home by themselves.

Responding officers found the two kids home alone watching the movie "Home Alone". Apparently they'd been there for almost six hours by the time the cops showed up.

Their mother, 25-year-old Taylor Cumings, was at work and allegedly kept the older boy home from school to watch his sick brother. Apparently she couldn't find a babysitter.

Cumings was arrested for neglect of a dependent.
