A two-year-old is found wandering down a College Station street alone after his babysitter left him unattended.

Police say Dastashia Franklin left the toddler alone at the Campus Village apartment for more than two hours while she went to the complex computer lab.

She told police she was checking on the child every five minutes but surveillance video shows she didn't get up once to make sure the boy was ok.

Police say the toddler dressed himself then wandered out the back door.

Franklin is also charged with identity theft after an officer found five checks made out to the apartment complex for rent -- that didn't belong to her.
