FRANKLIN - Police looking for a man wanted on drug charges found his home in such squalor that a woman and her children were immediately told to get out.
Photos taken by police inside the home Sunday at 182 West Bow St. show trash piled three feet high in some rooms, an overflowing toilet, a kitchen full of empty milk jugs, hundreds of cigarette butts around the sink, and in the middle of it all, a baby's play pen.
Police went to the home at 3:30 p.m. to speak with 29-year-old Joseph Herne, who was wanted on drug charges. Police said officers set up a perimeter and went to speak to 30-year-old Heather Avery who also lived in the home. She let them in, and what they found was thousands of empty fast food cups, trash strewn throughout the house, and as well as her children.
Police arrested Herne on a warrant charging him with sales of a controlled narcotic and resisting arrest. He was caught after he climbed out a rear window of the home, down a tree, and ran.
Several agencies have been called into to help investigate, police said.
