Police arrested a Garrard County mother after they say they found her diabetic 15-year old daughter at home alone with no running water and not enough food; which affected her blood sugar levels.

Police say Joyce Sands had left her daughter for seven days.

When police came to the home, they say they found only a few cans of food and the girl with high sugar levels because she hadn't been able to eat on a regular basis.

She was taken to the hospital.

Police charged Sands with criminal abuse, wanton endangerment and abandonment of a minor.
