California parents, who allegedly put their two kids in cages bolted to a bedroom wall, were arrested, Northern California authorities have confirmed.
Modoc County Sheriff Tex Dowdy told media on Tuesday, April 23, that deputies took them into custody last week after they found the two boys in the cages while serving a search warrant for illegal firearm possession.
Deputies found the twin boys in two cages stacked on top of each other; they were attached to the wall "like dog crates" inside the home in Tulelake on Friday, April 19. Tulelake is about 30 miles south of Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Additionally, the authorities also found three guns, ammunition and evidence of a butane honey oil lab in the house.
Deputies arrested Ramon Zendejas, 25, and his girlfriend, Mercadies Williams, also 25, and charged them with child endangerment and illegal firearms possession.
Suspected methamphetamine was also found inside the house, authorities said.
As per the report, the couple locked the kids to keep them away from the controlled substances and firearms.
According to the officials, Modoc County Child Protective Services has taken in the boys. The couple is being held in the county jail on $10,000 bond each.
