Woman Who Travelled Leaving Her 4 Young Kids Home Alone Has Been Banned From Seeing Them

Erin Macke, 30, is charged with four counts of child endangerment and one count of transfer of pistol or revolver to a person under 21 after police said she left her children -- 12-year-old twins, a 7-year-old and a 6-year-old -- home alone Sept. 20 while she traveled to Germany.




Police said they are unsure why Macke made the trip. Johnston police Lt. Tyler Tompkins said the children were left alone for 24 hours before the Police Department and the Iowa Department of Human Services received a tip and visited the children.

Police contacted Macke on Sept. 21, and she told officers she planned to be in Germany until Oct. 1.

Authorities said they convinced Macke to return to the United States before Oct. 1. She arrived Wednesday evening and was arrested Thursday morning.


Macke was released from the Polk County Jail after posting $9,000 bond. She evaded KCCI reporters and declined to comment on the incident.

The father of the youngest children, Matthew Macke, a police officer who lives in Anamosa, told KCCI he wanted to dispel rumors that he’s a deadbeat dad.

“As soon as I found out about it, I made the trip down to Johnston and picked them up right away,” he said. “They’re too young to grasp it. I haven’t told them much about it. We’ve just had the conversation that we can’t see Mom for a while, and they’re OK with that.”


Prosecutors say Erin Macke made no arrangements for the children before she left to travel overseas, leaving them to fend for themselves.

She now has a no-contact order, meaning she is not allowed to see her children.

Her next scheduled court date is Oct. 9 in Polk County.

    1. Naija kids are strong ooo. Many are left alone all the time. Some actually fend for themselves. Parents please take your obligations as parents more seriously.

    1. When you were 12 years, who was "minding you?"
      Make them copy from Naija.

    2. That's why we have such stars now. Children not watched get into all sorts and get abused by busy body neighbors. No they should not copy Naija.

  8. I have seen a mother leave a toddler my himself to go "huzzle" in the night. Am talking about a child below 3years. God rest their soul she is late and the baby died too.ladies if you can't take care of a child you have no business getting pregnant if you decide to give birth please give the baby up to people who need them

    1. It goes beyond that. Have you considered security issues? Like when a stranger shows up at the door, if the child falls sick say at night? It's just not right.

    2. This is not a good thing to brag about my God. At 12 you HAD NO BUSINESS BEING ALONE while your mother traveled. If your dad was there good but without adult supervision is careless.
