Floyd County police said they had received reports that there were children living in a home that was not suitable, WSB reported.

When officers investigated they said they found three children — an 11-year-old, 14-year-old and 16-year-old — with roaches on their clothes and a home covered in animal urine, trash and feces. At one point officers said they saw a cat urinate on the home’s stove.

Officials said the house was “unfit for human habitation,” WSB reported.

Police said the children had a noticeable odor at school, WSB reported.

“The home is in such a state of neglect, the children’s health has suffered,” officers wrote in their report.

Robin Smith, Austin Byess and Albert Byess have been charged with three counts of deprivation of a minor and three counts of first-degree cruelty to children, WSB reported.

Officials did not say what the relationship between the children and the three adults was.
