THE PROBABLE CAUSE AFFIDAVIT ALLEGED THAT THE CHILDREN WERE LOCKED INSIDE THE HOME AND HAD NO MEANS OF EXITING THE HOME.

UTILIZING THE FIRE DEPARTMENT, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WAS ABLE TO MAKE ENTRY THROUGH A WINDOW TO GET THE CHILDREN OUT.

“ANY TIME THERE IS A CRIME INVOLVING CHILDREN, WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT AN UTMOST PRIORITY,” SAID OTTO SCHALK.
