LEESBURG, Fla. --
Thousands of cockroaches rained down on an officer and were spotted crawling over an infant inside a Central Florida house of filth.
Officers checking the home of Debra Chappell and James Seevers in Leesburg found the couple and a 2-year-old living in the home described as not being fit for animals.
The report described thousands of cockroaches swarming inside the structure. An officer wrote that he had to jump back when he opened a refrigerator because of the number of "roaches that rained down on him."
Roaches were also inside the cupboards and crawling all over the child in her crib.
Photographs showed soiled diapers, clothes and other items covering the home.
There was no ventilation inside the home, only two fans.
The police report said that a sickly smell surrounded the outside of the structure.
Local 6 showed inside images of a sink full of dirty dishes and a floor so covered in debris that the officers said they could barely walk through the home.
The 2-year-old was removed from the home and her parents, Chappell and Seevers, were taken into custody. It is believed that the family had only lived in the home for about four months
