A western Pennsylvania woman has been charged with endangering her three children.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 34-year-old Bonnie Marie Rudgers, of Homer City, who remained in the Indiana County Jail on Tuesday.

Police say Pam Buterbaugh, the mother of Rudgers' deceased husband, called police after her grandchildren told about their mother taking them along to drug deals. The oldest of Rudgers' three daughters is 10.

Police say Rudgers had the girls with her during at least three drug deals from September until July 3.

Buterbaugh says her 10-year-old granddaughter learned in school that drugs were bad, and told her grandmother about the drug deals because she was afraid.
