While searching the residence, agents of the Department of Child Services also reported deplorable living conditions that were unsafe for children, and therefore removed the child from the residence and placed him under state care.

The Kings face charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia and transported to Adams County Jail.

DCS may file more charges against the Kings after further investigation, officials said.
