MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) — A Myrtle Beach couple is in jail after police found two children covered in bed bug bites and living in animal feces inside a Socastee home.

Horry County police officers went to a home off Enterprise Road in the Socastee area of Horry County Monday afternoon at the request of a DSS agent. When officers arrived, a man was removing bags of trash from the home, and told officers he lived there with his girlfriend and her two children.

Officers began to enter the home to determine if living conditions were appropriate for the two children. The police report says officers noted a “strong odor of cat urine” while they were standing on the porch, which was covered in “piles of trash with maggots and a large pile of cat litter that contained feces.”

Several cats were seen freely walking in and out of the home through a hole in the kitchen window. The report says there was no air conditioning in the home and the floor was covered in animal urine and feces.
