Riverton Police identified the teen as 18-year-old Tialyssa Armour. The incident allegedly took place at a home on Heather Drive.

The mother of the children came home at 9:21 p.m. Saturday and found Armour gone from the house, vomit on the back door and her two children all alone inside. She told police she had hired the teen to look after her kids while she was at work. The kids were okay.

Police found Armour “in the area” laying in the back seat of a small pickup truck. A breath test revealed her blood alcohol level was .20% BAC. The legal level is .08%.

Inside the home officers found several broken items, including a mirror and a coffee cup and an overturned coffee table in the living room.

When questioned, Armour allegedly told officers that she started drinking at 4 p.m. and that she had used meth earlier in the day.

It was not reported if the alcohol came from the home or if the teen brought it with her.

Armour was arrested and taken to the Fremont County Detention Center in Lander.
