Lentrell Jordan, 35, 1522 Holly St., Alexandria, is accused of leaving twin 3-year-old boys home alone while he went to the store, according to the Alexandria Police Department.
Police were called to the home after a housing inspector went to the home for an inspection and one of the boys answered the door. The inspector knocked on the door after discovering she didn’t have the key to the residence.
Jordan returned to the home and allegedly told police he had been gone between 30 and 45 minutes. He said he left the children home because they were sleeping and that he didn’t want to wake them up.
Police called the Office of Community Services, and the children were turned over to their mother.
Jordan was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail on a charge of child desertion.
