Deputies wrote in the report Greene said she was in the Walgreens photo department to print off some pictures, The deputy wasn't able to determine exactly how long the children had been left unattended.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office reports a complaint was filed on November 6, 2012 on a report Greene left her children without an adult present in a motel room.

Greene was arrested and charged with four counts of child neglect two days later. The children were turned over to the care of their maternal grandmother.
