Hephzibah, GA--

A Hephzibah woman was arrested after her child was found wandering down a street.

Deputies found the two-year old walking around Wednesday afternoon.

Tracie Christmas is charged with deprivation of a minor.

Witnesses told officers it was not the first time they've seen the child walking around on her own.

This was the second time officers were sent to the same area for the same complaint.

    That is horrible! Stories like this make me sick. What kind of mother lets her two year old wander outside alone???? Twice!!!! I hope the child was taken from the home.
