A mother with five young children has been arrested after police discovered her residence was so filthy they say it was ``unlivable.''
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports 33-year-old Brandy Azad was charged with five counts of child neglect after officers found her house infested with roaches and her children unattended Monday night.
Azad told police two of her children are autistic and one has Down syndrome.
When officers arrived at Azad's rental house, they found two children under 5 roaming the neighborhood. Inside, officers saw roaches crawling on a sleeping child. Azad told officers she was sick and the father of one child supposed to be watching the kids.
It is unclear if Azad has a lawyer or who is currently caring for the children.
