LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police arrested a Louisville woman after officials say her daughter told them her mom had used illegal drugs.

Tonya McDaniel, 39, was arrested Sunday evening in the 200 block of Hiawatha Avenue, near Allmond Avenue, according to the official police report.

Authorities say two children were found inside the home.

Officials say McDaniel was found inside a run-down building in the backyard hiding in a closet.

McDaniel is charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
