SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. — Two parents were arrested and charged after their two children were found on the roof of their home, according to WTVR.

On Tuesday, deputies responded to the couple’s home on Wakeman Drive in Spotsylvania County.

Upon arrival, deputies encountered several people who were trying to convince the children on the roof to go back inside the home.

“Senior Deputy Ridings was able to retrieve the children through the open window while Deputy Spillman contacted the parents, who were sleeping in another room,” Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Capt. Jeffery Pearce wrote in an email to WTVR.

Investigators said both children were under 3-years-old. A 9-month-old baby was left unattended in a playpen inside the home.

Michael Gillikin, 26 and Nancy Gillikin, 27 were both arrested on four counts of felony child neglect, according to the report. Their children are now in the custody of child services.

    I continue to urge a common sense test that people must take and pass with 100% score before being allowed to reproduce. Protect the choice of future children not to be subject to the whims of micro encephaloid idiots.

      Nah–I’m with you, FaithC. Between the “I reblogged this on…” and “My uncle’s cousin’s aunt’s best friend from elementary school made $3 million sitting on his rump…” I’m glad to be left out with you ;-)

PEOPLE SAYING THEY DO DRUGS AND NANCY DENYING. THEY DO DRUGS OF MULTIPLE KINDS. SHE SAYS SHE WILL DO A DRUG TEST. HER HUSBAND KNOWS WAYS TO FLUSH IT OUT OF THEIR URINE. EVEN BEFORE THE ENTIRE ROOF EVENT THOSE KIDS WERE IN A BAD ENVIRONMENT. HOWEVER I DO STICK WITH THEY DO LOVE THEIR KIDS AND WOULDNT SO CARELESSLY PUT THEM IN HARMS WAY. THEY NEED HELP AND TO OPEN THEIR EYES TO HOW THEIR WAY OF LIFE IS EFFECTING THEIR KIDS. HOPEFULLY THIS SITUATION WILL DO THAT. THIS WHOLE FAMILY NEEDS SOME SERIOUS REHAB. THAT TOWNHOUSE IS MIKES PARENTS WHO THEY LIVE WITH, IM ASSUMING THE GRANDPARENTS WERE BOTH AT WORK WHEN THIS HAPPENED. THEY ONLY GOOD KID THEY HAVE IS CHRISSY WHO CHILD SERVICES RELEASED THE KIDS TO.
