MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Mandan police have discovered a family living in a storage unit while conducting a welfare check.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1sWbxB6 ) Deputy Police Chief Paul Leingang said Wednesday that police “let them be for the night” when they found the family Tuesday because there was no immediate danger to the two children, ages 7 and 9.

Police received a call Tuesday about the children in the storage unit doubling as a mechanical workshop. Leingang says a 41-year-old man and 40-year-old woman were residing in the unit, which contained a loft and a camper that the family used for cooking.

He says the children “appeared in good health” but police notified state welfare officials.

The family tells police they will relocate to a permanent home by Nov. 1.
