EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
Five adults have been charged with "neglect of dependent" after police find children living in a house they call "very unsafe, unsanitary, and unlivable..."
Last Thursday, Evansville Police officers were sent to the 2600 block of S. Saint James Blvd. in reference to a narcotics complaint and to check the welfare of juveniles inside the home.
When officers arrived, a man named Michael Robb answered the front door. He voluntarily allowed the officers inside saying "The house is a little messy."
Inside the two-bedroom home, officers found six adults and four small children. The children were between the ages of one and nine years old.
Although it is a two bedroom home, only one bedroom was being used. The other reportedly suffered "fire and smoke damage" and was not being used.
After a walk through officers determined that the children should be removed, and charges should be filed.
Officers say there were piles of trash, food, and clothes scattered through the house. In the bathroom were piles of "wet and mildew[ed]" clothing around the toilet and bath tub.
One of the home's residents said that during the cold weather the pipes had cracked and, now, leak water.
The police report goes into detail on the state of the home. It says officers found carpets matted down by dirt, food, and dog and cat feces. Officers say they found "pizza, candy bars, rotten banana peals, and dried chicken thighs on the floor."
They say there was very little food in the refrigerator, and what was there was "unsanitary with maggots inside."
The kitchen sink and counters were covered in dirty, moldy dishes with "small bugs flying around."
There was a small dog and two cats inside the home. Officers say it seemed the offenders cared more about the animals than their children.
Dani York has a nine-year-old daughter. Officers said York claimed to have "just cleaned the house last week."
Candace Carnahan is the mother of two of the children. Jarrod Fuquay is the father of one of those children. Another child belonged to Michael Robb and Toni Carnahan.
Officers say when they entered the home one of the children was running around the house naked, another only had a diaper on. They say that child was filthy and had not had a bath in several days. Candace is approximately four months pregnant.
None of the children had beds. They were all sleeping on the floor which was covered in food and trash.
Officers say they found the children eating food off the floor. One picked up a chicken thigh from the floor of the bedroom and began eating it, until an officer made them put it down.
Another child was crawling on the floor with a blue tube-like object in his mouth. The officer took it away and discovered it was a blue metal pipe with burnt marijuana residue inside.
The officers began getting the children together to remove them from the home, but say they could not find any clean clothes; and that the two younger children did not have coats.
All four children have been put into foster homes.
Five adults; Candace Carnahan, Toni Carnahan-Tosti, Jerrod Fuqua, Michael Robb, and Dani York were arrested and transported to jail on child neglect charges.
Michael Robb and Dani York also face a drug possession charge for prescription pills.
