TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa woman has been arrested after police reportedly discovered thousands of dead roaches and rotting food inside an apartment where her children lived.

The 30-year-old woman was jailed on three child neglect complaints. It was unclear if she had an attorney.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/1paVyIR ) that officers were called to an apartment after someone reported hearing children screaming inside.

An arrest report says officers who responded to the apartment described “the entire floor covered in rotting trash, dirty diapers, clothes and filth.” Detectives also found thousands of dead roaches throughout the residence - including inside the refrigerator.

The woman’s three children were placed in temporary custody with their grandfather by the Department of Human Services.
