EWING, N.J. (April 18, 2013)--Two children were discovered living in a storage unit after Trenton, N.J. officers went to the locker in Ewing, N.J. on Thursday following the arrest of a woman earlier in the day who told police her two sons were there, Trenton police Lt. Mark Kieffer said.
Police discovered a 5-year-old and a 10-year-old living inside a filthy, narrow, unheated unit at the Extra Space Storage facility.
The children were removed by police.
The Mercer County prosecutor's office was investigating.
Police say the boys' mother was arrested for slashing the tires on her boyfriend's car.
They say she told them about her children as part of routine questioning on whether she had any dependents.
