Elk Grove Police arrested a Sacramento woman and an accomplice on suspicion of attempting to buy drugs with a stolen prescription and child endangerment last night.

During their investigation, officers determined that the Vallare had allegedly had left her two other children, ages 11 and 5, alone at a residence in Sacramento. The Sacramento Sheriff`s Department responded to the residence and confirmed that both children were left without adult supervision. 

Vallare and Williams were arrested and booked into the county jail where they remain in custody awaiting arraignment on Wednesday, February 8. The three children were later turned over to Child Protective Services (CPS).
