On Monday, November 4, 2019 the NCSO arrested a man and woman at their residence in the 5700 block of S I-45 West in Angus on multiple felony charges.
The NCSO had responded to the report of a small child found walking on the service road near the FM 739 overpass at Angus. A good Samaritan had observed the child walking unattended in the roadway and had picked the child up and stayed with the child until Deputies arrived.
The NCSO requested Child Protective Services come t...o the location to assist with the investigation.
Deputies later learned a possible address for the child and Patrol Deputies along with CID investigators responded to the location to verify if the parents resided at the location.
The Deputies were able to verify that the child did in fact reside at the residence and two additional siblings also resided at the location. The Deputies obtained verbal consent to search the location and found what was observed to be deplorable living conditions inside the residence and an indoor marijuana growing operation at the location.
The suspects were arrested for one count of abandon or endangering a child (imminent danger) State Jail Felony offense, and three counts of abandon or endangering a child (criminal negligence) State Jail Felony offense. Both suspects were also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.
