Twins Found In Closet; Day-Care Operator Charged

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - New Castle County Police have charged an unlicensed day-care operator after officers say they found 3-year-old twins in a closet.
    
Authorities went to a Newark apartment about 3:30 p.m. Thursday after receiving a report of possible child neglect. Police say no one answered the door at the apartment and a maintenance worker let officers in.
    
Officials say officers saw a chair wedged in a hallway between a closet door and a bathroom door. Police say officers opened the door and found the twins sleeping on pillows and blankets on the floor.
    
Authorities say the toddlers were in good health.
    
Police say the apartment resident who operated a day care came home and was arrested.
    
Nineteen-year-old Veronica Miller has been charged with 12 counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
