LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hodgenville Police say they've arrested two parents after five children were found in a home "not fit for anyone to live in."

According to arrest reports, officers were dispatched to the home of 39-year-old Christopher Adkins and 40-year-old Christy Jordan on Woods Lane in Hodgenville, just before 6 p.m. Monday, to check on the welfare of five children who live there.

"The living conditions were not fit for anyone to live in," an officer wrote in an arrest report. "The house was full of roaches, the sinks had standing sour water in them, the toilets were nasty and unfit to use, there was cloth[e]s in the floor literally two feet deep, roaches were crawling in the beds and everywhere."

The officer added that, "there was dog crap in the floors," and there wasn't any food fit to eat in the house.

"The food that was there was infested with roaches," the officer wrote.

Both Adkins and Jordan were arrested and charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor. Both are currently being held in the LaRue County Detention Center.
