Toddler found living lived in tiny closet of feces-infested meth house in Katy, Texas

Deputies in Harris County, Texas rescued a 4-year-old  boy from a feces-infested meth house while authorities raided the residence.

Officials said the dealers forced the boy live in a closet next to drugs and sex toys.

Officers with the Precinct 5 Constable’s Office were dispatched to a home on the west side of Houston after they received information that drug activity was taking place in the house, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Once inside the meth house, deputies discovered a 4-year-old boy who was being forced to live in a tiny closet.

A toddler was found living in the closet of a feces-infested home in Kay, Texas on Tuesday where police believe meth was being sold

The feces-infested home in West Harris County was being used to sell methamphetamine earlier this week. The Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office said Tuesday

“The home wasn’t fit to live inside, let alone a child,” a department spokesperson said.

Deputies reportedly discovered the boy who was being cared for by a woman who was not his mother, along with a dog and kitten. Authorities said rat feces was all throughout the house.

The boy’s mother was not present when police arrived.

Officers located the mother had two outstanding arrest warrants and took her into custody.

Police said deputies found what they describe as deplorable condition of filth, stench, rat droppings, methamphetamine, and pot.

The suspected ringleader of the drug operation was not on the property when police arrived and remains a fugitive 

The warrants included charges of possessing drugs. Officials intend to file child endangerment charges.

A warrant was also issued for the purported drug dealer who was not present at the time of the bust.

Authorities turned the boy over to Child Protective Services (CPS) who brought him to a hospital for evaluation.

CPS is attempting to locate immediate family members.

Deputies said the drug dealer was selling meth out of the home.
