Sometimes the stories just write themselves, folks.
The cops in Muncie, Indiana got an anonymous tip on Tuesday about a seven-year-old boy and four-year-old boy who were at home by themselves.
And when the cops got there, they found the two kids home alone . . . watching the movie "Home Alone".
Apparently they'd been alone for almost six hours at that point, while their 25-year-old mom Taylor Cumings was at work. She said she couldn't find a babysitter.
She was arrested for neglect of a dependent.
