Three people are accused of operating a rat feces-filled drug house, where a child also lived, according to Apple Valley deputies.
On Thursday, deputies followed up on a tip about possible illegal activity at a home. Deputies served a search warrant at a home in 13400 block of Kiowa Road, just south of Yucca Loma Road.
While searching the home, deputies say they found methamphetamine, heroin, a taser and drug paraphernalia.
The drugs and paraphernalia were accessible to a young child living at the home, according to deputies. Rat feces was also found throughout the home. Children and Family Services was contacted, and the child was released to a family member, sheriff’s officials said.
The suspects arrested were:
Michael Jay Myers, 58
Amanda Michelle Smith, 39
David James Myers, 27
Michael Myers is a previously convicted felon and thus prohibited from owning or possessing a taser. He was arrested and released at the scene, police said.
David Myers and Amanda Smith were arrested and transported to High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto, where they are each being held in lieu of $60,000 bail, sheriff's officials said.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Deputy Loup at the Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station at 760- 240-7400 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at 760-956-5001.
