Deputies: St. Pete woman left kids home alone while she partied in Tampa

ST. PETERSBURG — Authorities arrested a woman they said left a group of children home alone so she could go clubbing in Tampa.

Priscilla Vazquez, 22, of St. Petersburg, was booked into jail Tuesday. She admitted to leaving the children, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8, without adult supervision Sunday night, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Someone discovered the kids were by themselves at about 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to an arrest affidavit.

Vazquez, who also uses the last name Delgado, didn't return home until 9 p.m. Monday, deputies said.

"She said she didn't have a ride home," said Cristen Rensel, a sheriff's office spokesperson.

Vazquez was in the Pinellas County Jail on Wednesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
