Four kids were being held in cages, according to North Platte police, as officers were called to a home where they found very unsanitary and unsafe conditions.
Police say there was trash, dirty clothing, food and animal feces throughout the residence.
Two young children, ages 5 and 3, were allegedly found housed in a animal kennel with a mattress. The door to the kennel was secured with a wire tie. The other two children, ages 8 and 8 months, were not kenneled, but were in what was considered unsafe conditions.
Four adults were charged with felony child abuse, first-degree false imprsionment and misdemeanor child abuse.
They are identified as 25-year-old Bryson Eyten, 24-year-old Samantha Eyten, 22-year-old Ashly Clark and 20-year-old Lacy Beyer.
The children are now in the custody of Health & Human Services.
