The London Police Department says a mother is behind bars after leaving her teen daughter home alone for an extended period of time. Officers responded to a home at Pine Hill Apartments for a welfare check where they found a 16-year-old girl who had been living alone for about a week. An arrest citation says officers found drugs and paraphernalia inside the home. Police say they tried to find the girl’s mother for several hours. Officers say the mother, identified as 35-year-old Kelli Tuttle, finally came home extremely drunk and was arrested. Tuttle is charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. She was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center. The teen was placed in protective custody.
