Around 8 p.m. Oct. 22 an officer responded to a residence in the 700 block of Seventh Street for a report of child abuse.

Social workers told officers they needed officers present for a home visit.

The officer noted there were four children in the home and there were roaches crawling everywhere, food dried to the floor, dirty diapers and clothing throughout the residence.

An infant girl was sitting in a baby swing and the officer noted there were roaches crawling all over the swing and child.

The parents said they had cleaned and set off bug bombs, however the officer was unsuccessful in finding empty canisters for the insecticide.

The children were removed from the home under emergency conditions and placed in the care of the social workers. The officer noted he intended to consult the district attorney’s office regarding abuse and neglect charges against the parents.

The officer found several holes in the windows consistent with a BB gun being shot at the glass as well as a rock lying inside the business on the floor and fingerprints on the inside of one of the holes.

The resident told officers his wife, who suffers from a mental disease and isn’t supposed to be driving, backed the car through the closed garage door and left.

The officer documented heavy damage to the door.

The officer noted a missing person’s report was issued, but the woman returned home later in the day after dairy workers found her out in the county and guided her home.

No citations were issued.
