CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) - Middlesex Township police arrested a couple on charges of neglect and deplorable and living conditions. 

On Saturday, police responded to a report of children playing in traffic on Wertzville Road. Police attempted to return the children to their home when they discovered parents were not present, only an ill grandmother. 

Upon entering, police determined the home to be under deplorable living conditions. According to police, the entire home was consumed with animal feces and filth. 

Children and Youth Services were notified and two children were taken into custody. The elderly woman living in the home was transported to a nearby hospital, police said.

Monica L. Bohn, 31, and Michael Z. Karns, 28, have both been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of recklessly endangering another person. 

The couple is now in Cumberland County Prison awaiting arraignment.
