Smith County Sheriff's department arrests couple for leaving kids at Fair

The Smith County Sheriff's Department arrests a Hawkins couple for allegedly abandoning their three small children at the East Texas State Fair.

48 year old Terry Decker and 27 year old Kristina Stracener-Decker have been charged with abandonment and child endangerment.

Authorities say the couple dropped their 11, 8 and 6 year old off at the fair last Saturday night.

They didn't return, authorities say, until 1:30 the next morning. CPS officials are now investigating.
