29-year-old Rheannon Bryant is in McKean County Jail on $10,000 bail.
Police say on Monday afternoon they were told that the children were in the middle of street and, when they got to the scene, learned several people had been trying to find the parents for about half an hour. After taking the children to the police station, officers learned they had severe diaper burns on their buttocks and genitals.
Police and CYS then went to 144 East Avenue, where they could smell rotten food as soon as they got out of the vehicle. Inside the house, piles of food were in every room of the house to the point the floor was not visible, according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office. Also, there were flies throughout the house and two piles of about 20 used diapers. Police also discovered that the children had been sleeping on couch cushions on the floor.
