Rock Hill police investigating the possible theft of electricity say they found five children living in a filthy home.
Officers say they had gotten an anonymous tip that residents in the home may have been stealing electricity from a neighbor's house.
The Herald of Rock Hill reported Monday that police and the Department of Social Services returned to the home to check on the welfare of the children, who ranged in age from 3 to 12.
Police say they found beer cans and food in the yard and rotten food in the house. The floors were covered with bugs.
Officials arranged for the children to stay elsewhere. Officers were not immediately able to talk with the children's mother.
