About 15 minutes later another adult, Rosheen Nulph arrived and she was determined to be the mother of the two children ages 6 and 2. Deputies searched Cory and Rosheen’s bedroom and found 5 rifles, three 22 caliber rifles and two 12 gauge shotguns. Lt Smethers says one of the rifles had been sawed off and converted into a pistol grip. Another Shotgun was found in a Tuff Shed behind the residence where a Mr. Pylon was living.

Smethers says deputies also located about 3 ounces of methamphetamine, scales, and packaging materials; as well as several water pipes, bongs, and syringes.
All the materials were in reach of the two children so Child Protective Services  was called.
