SPRING, Texas- A mother and father have been arrested and charged for alleged child endangerment after nine children were removed from their home in Spring on Wednesday.
According to Montgomery County Precinct 3, deputies conducted a welfare check at a home located in the 1600 block of Julia Park Lane after receiving several reports from concerned neighbors.
The neighbors told police they hadn't seen the children who live in the home for "an extended period of time."
Investigators say the their nine children were living in filth and were removed from the home after a issuing a search warrant.
“Large amounts of trash. Food trash, mold, mildew, things along those lines," said Chief Deputy Constable Matt Rodrigue. "It’s just not the place you would want anyone living, much less several children.”
Daniel and Sabrina Bell have been charged with Child Endangerment, and more charges are expected.
Authorities say a 13-month-old child was transported to Texas Children's Hospital as a precaution, and the other eight are with Child Protective Services. The oldest child is 10 years old.
