Two parents at Country Squire Lakes in Jennings County were arrested on drug and child neglect charges Saturday after police found their home didn’t have running water, there were many violations of the health and safety codes and drugs were out in plain view. All while two young children were in the home.
Jennings County deputies report that they went to the home on Shrimpton Court at about 4:15 a.m. in the morning Saturday, looking for a fugitive who turned out not to be at the home. But while searching for the suspect at the residence, they noticed the poor conditions inside.
The children, ages 4 and 5, were placed with a relative and deputies arrested Apache and Skylar Blair on preliminary charges of child neglect, and possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
