(KMOV.com) – Three small children were removed from a home that police called a drug house in the 100 block of Thornhill Cemetery Road, just east of Troy.

Officers with the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office seized marijuana and other drug paraphernalia from a home where children ages three, five, and six were living.

Police arrested James Collins, 26, and Crystal Noble, 27, and say the two were selling drugs out of the home.

Authorities also say two of the children belonged to Noble and the third child belonged to Collins. Investigators also say they did not recover much marijuana, but also say Collins and Noble are no amateurs and were selling high-grade pot. 

Both are facing felony charges.

The kids were taken into protective custody, and are currently living with a grandparent.
