Parents are supposed to do what’s best for their children, yet there are still instances of neglectful parents around North Carolina. Recently, three children from Wake County were placed in the custody of the Child Protective Services after being found in a home that also served as a methamphetamine lab.
Both parents, Michael Curtis Jones and Jessica Nunez-Jones, along with three other people, were charged with manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine, along with maintaining a dwelling for the distribution of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Aside from these charges, both parents were charged with child abuse.
A Dangerous Environment for the Neighborhood
According to Bridget Roberts, a mother of two who recently moved in across the street, noted that the children seemed like normal kids, but grew concerned about their being unsupervised. “They didn’t come out much,” she said.
