Sioux Falls Couple Charged with Making Meth with 6 Kids in Home
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A Sioux Falls man and woman face drug and child abuse charges for allegedly making and distributing methamphetamine out of a home where six children lived.
Authorities say they were tipped off by a 15-year-old girl concerned about the safety of her siblings. Police arrested 34-year-old Tammara King and 41-year-old Eric Johnson last Friday, and the six children were taken into protective custody.
Three of the children are teenagers. The others are ages 10, 9 and 4.
Bond for King and Johnson was set at $10,000 Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if they had obtained attorneys, and a telephone listing for their home could not immediately be found Wednesday. A telephone listing for King at a different address was disconnected.
