    © image/png image/pngThe ex-husband of a woman who police said abandoned her children as she jetted off to Europe for a vacation said her departure was “an intentional premeditated act.”
    Erin Macke, 30, is charged with four counts of child endangerment and one count of transfer of pistol or revolver to a person under 21 after police said she left her children -- 12-year-old twins, a 7-year-old and a 6-year-old -- home alone Sept. 20 while she traveled to Germany.
    Police said they are unsure why Macke made the trip. Johnston police Lt. Tyler Tompkins said the children were left alone for 24 hours before the Police Department and the Iowa Department of Human Services received a tip and visited the children.
    Police contacted Macke on Sept. 21, and she told officers she planned to be in Germany until Oct. 1.
    “I’ve never heard of anything like this before,” Tompkins said. “We have situations where parents go next door or parents may go out for the night, and while that’s not advisable either, depending on the age of the children, obviously, leaving the country is a totally different situation. This, where a parent has left the country and left the kids home alone, I’ve never heard of it before.”
    Authorities said they convinced Macke to return to the United States before Oct. 1. She arrived Wednesday evening and was arrested Thursday morning.

    She now has a no-contact order, meaning she is not allowed to see her children.
    Her next scheduled court date is Oct. 9 in Polk County.
