MANCHESTER - Two children were removed from their Manchester apartment Monday after police responded to check the conditions of the people living inside.
Police say patrol officers responded to a Quirin Street, Manchester apartment house at 3:40 a.m. Monday to check the condition of the 26-year-old resident and the children residing in apartment No. 3. The person who called police say they were concerned the apartment's resident, James Grenier, 26, was in danger of harming himself.
Police determined that he was not in danger of harming himself, and he allowed officers into his apartment. Once inside, they discovered two children "in extremely unsanitary and unsafe conditions."
Police say Grenier's 4-year-old son was in a harness attached to his bed, which was covered in feces and urine. Grenier's 2-year-old daughter was in a crib, unclothed and covered in feces.
Officers described the apartment as "fly-infested," and noticed trash, human and animal feces scattered on the floors, and food on the counters, and a "pungent odor" throughout the hallways of the apartment building.
The children were placed in the care of their grandparents. The Department of Child and Family Services were notified. James Grenier was taken into custody and charged with two counts endangering the welfare of a child and one count reckless conduct.
He was scheduled to appear in 9th Circuit Court in Manchester on Monday.
