SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say five children, including a 2-week-old baby, have been removed from a Sioux Falls home and their mother has been arrested after methamphetamine was found at their apartment.

Police say the 38-year-old woman is facing charges of abuse or cruelty to a minor and drug possession. Officials say they went to the home Tuesday for a welfare check after one of the older children didn’t show up at school. Besides the baby, the children are ages 14, 11, 8 and 4 years old.

Police say the children were turned over to the Department of Social Services.
