According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Jasmine Nicole Clark, 22, of Opelika, and Brittney Lata Menefield, 25, of Opelika, were both arrested on Nov. 3 following an incident in October.
On Oct. 28 around midnight, the police department received a call from citizens after 5-year-old twin boys knocked on their door. The children, according to the callers, were dirty, unsupervised and begging for food.
The little boys lead deputies back to a trailer, located on Lee Road 114 in Opelika, where the two boys appeared to live. No adults were home at the time. Their investigation later revealed that the children had been locked in a bedroom by their mother, Jasmine Clark.
