In one area of Florida, police officers received a neighbor's call for children who were abandoned.


Agents from the Marion County Sheriff's Office arrested Sara Nicole Resko, 30, after some of the children were found roaming the streets on Tuesday, July 31, 2018, according to a report by Fox Carolina.

The six children of Sara Nicole Resko lived in a stinking house, sleeping on the floor on mats near the dog feces.

The initial worry was generated by a 2-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl, who were walking down the street semi-naked. 

The girl was in worse condition than the boy, and had multiple open sores on the arms, legs, chest, back, feet and face, the officers said. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.


While the agents tried to find out where the two children were coming from, they saw more children riding their bikes down the road, later identified as brothers of the two and four-year-olds.

A phone call reported an irregular situation with the infants in the Porter Shores neighborhood.


After the uniforms made an appearance in the place they confirmed that other 4 children of 6, 8, 9 and 13 years belonged to the same family and were in an inhuman situation.

According to the officials' report, the characteristics of the home were described as "some of the worst they have seen."


The mother went to work and left the children at their own risk.

When she was surprised by this visit, Resko said that she had gone to do a quick errand and denied that they would spend alone most of the time.

The deputies finally determined that Resko failed on multiple occasions to provide care and supervision to these children. DCF responded and took custody of the six children.

Sara Nicole Resko will remain behind bars, accused of several crimes of child neglect. His descendants are under the protection of the government.
