Karen Jones was arrested Friday afternoon on charges of reckless conduct. She owns Karen’s Kiddie Corner in Augusta, Georgia.

Police say a fire inspector overseeing the business saw Jones drive away from the daycare Friday afternoon. The inspector said several children were walking around with no adult supervision.

Authorities say Jones’ daughter was dropped off by a school bus and unlocked the door for police. They say they found nine kids between the ages of one and nine years old.

When Jones returned, she was taken into custody and the children were returned to their parents. The children appeared to be unharmed.
