DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Des Moines police have arrested two people on charges of child endangerment after finding an 8-month-old girl in an apartment closet near a rifle and ammunition.

Authorities say 27-year-old Philip Barber and 22-year-old Kelsey Kenworthy were arrested Tuesday. Police reports say the two also showed signs of drug use.

Reports say officers initially responded to a report of screaming and crashing sounds coming from the home. Upon entering, reports say police searched the bedroom to find exposed, used syringes and the girl in a car seat in a closet next to a loaded semi-automatic rifle.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1ulcwXJ ) police contacted family services, which then transported the girl to Broadlawns Medical Center for evaluation.

Barber and Kenworthy were placed on $2,000 bond each. Calls to attorneys went unanswered.
