Officers found cockroaches crawling on the walls, flies in the air, and dirty diapers and food on the ground.

Police called Child Protection Services, who removed an 8-year-old and a 2-year-old, both of which were covered in bug bites.

Upon searching the residence, several hypodermic needles were found within reach of the children, as well as drugs including methamphetamine, THC candy, marijuana and smoking devices.
