HAZLETON, Pa. -- Five children have been removed from a filthy house in Hazleton.

Pictures of filth taken by police show a glimpse of how five children lived at the apartment on North Poplar Street in Hazleton.

City police say they were called to this home Wednesday to find a 2-year-old child naked in the middle of nearby North Poplar Street.

People in Hazleton can't believe it.

"It is actually kind of depressing because how somebody could have a child and not care about their children and that is totally just something uncalled for," said David Yost.

Officers found another child in the doorway and then discovered the filthy world the kids lived in.

With no parent around, police ended up removing the children and putting them in protective services

"The cops did step in and do what they had to do, and hopefully, got justice for the kids, and hopefully, now they are in a better condition," said Yost.

Hazleton police say a city code enforcement officer ended up coming to the second-floor apartment and ended up condemning it.

Officers found trash, bugs, and feces throughout the house.

When Newswatch 16 stopped by, garbage bags and belongings were outside the front steps.

Five children ranging in age from 13 to 2 years old were removed from the home. There were no adults in the home at the time.

Police say charges are pending.

    To the person that is deleting all the comments: Know this – you are a spineless coward punk that wouldn’t have the 🏀 ⚽️ to say a word if any one of us were in public. So delete away knowing you would get your clock cleaned if you tried to silence any one of us.

      You’re an idiot, of course they have to go crazy deleting comments because they are all ignorant and racist. You’re also a huge hypocrite for threatening through a computer screen.

      This Sinclair owned propaganda outlet has thought police. That is who is removing comments you idiot. I can’t even believe I just wasted 45 seconds schooling your d u m b. A. S. S. On what is going on.

      • fortisveritas

        How do we know it’s not YOU deleting all the comments? Then you can run around screaming SINCLAIR, SINCLAIR! Kind of like all the other attention seeking nut jobs out there. I can’t believe I’m entertaining a crazy person…

      Every comment made goes against the controllers narrative so of course theydon’t want people seeing truth. You however are as programmed as a citizen could get, this is beyond clear seeing the comments you make. You have absolutely 0 clue as to what our reality is.

        “You however are as programmed as a citizen could get”

        Yeah, OK. Coming from someone that has no original thoughts of their own, all you can do is parrot what you see on the counter-culture wackadoodle sites you visit. Have a nice delusional day.

      Wnep is no different than cnn. They are propaganda outlets. Idiot. 150 local stations across country report virtually same thing wnep reports , I believe I sent you the info that proves this earlier but obviously you are too stupid to look into it.

      • fortisveritas

        I thought you weren’t going to debate with me anymore? Man of your word I see. The impulse to prove yourself is stronger than your resolve I see. Now run along and go rot your brain some more on your counter-culture web sites. The flat earth forum starts in 10 minutes, followed by the fake NASA group.

    • fortisveritas

      Sorry Bobby-pins, name calling will get you nowhere in life. Neither will talking like a crazy person, I don’t listen to people who have proven themselves insane. What do you charge the evil Sinclair group to live in your head 24/7?
