Curry County Sheriff’s investigators arrested a Clovis couple Friday on drug charges following a tip from one of the children living in the residence.

Danny, 35, and Samantha Alcala, 32, are charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence and child endangerment.

The child who called law enforcement alleged the home was continually an environment of fighting, drinking, and drug abuse.

Jeremy Lakin, father of two of the children, said they’re now living with him. The third child has been placed in foster care, Lakin said.
