An Evansville woman is arrested on child neglect charges.

Evansville Police say they arrested 50-year-old Tamara Bullington for Neglect of a Dependent following an investigation into unsafe living conditions in her home.

Authorities say in September, officials removed 5 children under the age of 18 from Bullington's house after determining the home was unsafe and unhealthy for the children. The conditions included a bug infestation and floors that were covered in debris.

Officials say an arrest warrant was issued for Bullington and she was taken into custody on Sunday.

Police say Bullington was arrested on similar charges in 2010.

The children remain in the care of CPS.
