DCF Takes Custody Of Children After Drug Bust

SEYMOUR, Conn. (AP) _ Police say five children have been removed from a Seymour home after a drug raid turned up marijuana, guns and filthy living conditions.

The New Haven Register reports  that five children ranging in age from 10 months to 9 years were removed from the home after police found dog feces all over the place and a strong smell of urine and feces.

Officers raided the house on Knorr Avenue last Thursday and arrested three people on drug and child endangerment charges. Police say they found more than a half ounce of marijuana, drug-selling materials, two handguns, two rifles and an unspecified amount of cash.

The Department of Children and Families took custody of two children, while the other three children were released into the custody of their grandmother.
