EAST MOLINE, Illinois -- A woman was taken into custody after investigators found she had left her one-year-old child home alone.

The 13-month-old child was found alone and sleeping in an apartment in the 1200 block of 49th Avenue Court, according to East Moline Police Captain Darren Gault.  Officers were called to the home on Tuesday, February 19.
