A Columbia mom was arrested Friday after leaving her 2-year-old daughter home alone.
A man driving in the 2400 block of Atlas Road saw the girl wandering alone on the side of the road and took the child to Bibleway Church of Atlas Road, police said.
The child did not appear physically injured; however her clothes were reportedly wet, police said.
A Richland County sheiff's deputy who was close to the area began knocking doors in the Congaree Point neighborhood when he found a home with the front door open and was able to locate a photograph of a woman believed to be the child's mother.
Church members identified the woman in the picture as 29-year-old Devin Timmons.
Timmons was arrested and charged with unlawful conduct toward a child.
She was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
