After stepping inside the officer found the interior to be in complete disarray. There was broken furniture in the kitchen, no refrigerator, dirty dishes and insects covering the counter, and the floors were dirty. Two minor children were playing in the living room with tobacco products lying on the table. The carpet was dirty and a dirty diaper was on the couch. The hallway was bare wood with exposed tack strips. The first room to the right had a kicked in door with used hypodermic needles sitting on a broken dresser. The floor and bed were covered in debris and there was a dirty litter pan on the floor. The thermostat was missing from the hallway wall and no furnace was found in the utility closet. At the end of the hallway was an uncovered electrical panel. Inside the bathroom soiled clothes were lying on the floor with black mold on the wall next to the tub. In the back bedroom the officer observed part of a broken glass pipe on the dresser, two partially smoked cigarettes on a table next to the bed, two broken TVs and various TV parts on the dresser and in a storage tub on the floor. The male resident stated the children had stayed the night were going to be leaving tomorrow. The officer contacted Children Services, which had been trying to locate the children as well as two older children. The residents advised the older children were staying with their grandmother in Phillipsburg. A Children Services caseworker arrived and after inspecting the trailer determined it would be in the best interest of the two younger children to stay with their grandmother as well.
