According to a press release from the Johnson Police Department, police were called to Macke's home on September 21 following a report that children had been left without adult supervision.

Police said that Macke's sitter fell through and she left the 12-year-olds in charge, KCCI reported. Police say that Macke had left the country the day before and was en route to Germany. This fourth charge was filed after police found out that she left a gun in the home that was accessible to the children.

The woman, 30, was charged with four counts of child endangerment and one count of transferring a firearm to a person under the age of 21, Johnston police spokeswoman Janet Wilwerding said.
