FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT) -   According to the Forrest City Police Department, six children were found alone in a vehicle in the Forrest City Wal-Mart parking lot.

Police say 24-year-old Jasmine Adaway and 20-year-old Daffany Payne, both of Forrest City, were arrested Thanksgiving night for Endangering the Welfare of a Minor 1st degree, which is a felony offense.

Investigators say the children ranging from ages one to seven were found inside the vehicle after an officer was called out the parking lot to check on a car alarm around 10:54 p.m.

When confronted, the two mothers gave conflicting stories on who was supposed to be watching the children, according to police.

The Department of Human Services met officers at the police department to help with the children. Adaway and Payne were taken to the St. Francis County Jail on felony charges and are scheduled for arraignment on Nov. 28.
