A 29-year-old woman is facing criminal charges after her two children were found roaming outside their home Thursday.

The manager at Fox Den apartments found a 6-year-old wandering alone outside, according to Rich­mond County sheriff's Sgt. James Kelly.

The manager led the child to his home on Fox Trace but could not find an adult.

Later, the child's 8-year-old sibling was also discovered alone outside. Authorities arrived and found no food in the children's home.

Tasha Simpson was later arrested and charged with two counts of child deprivation.
