Police said they saw roaches crawling on children as they slept in a filthy Dallas trailer.

A couple was arrested after police found them and four children living in a roach-infested, filthy trailer loaded with rotting food and beer cans in the Rylie area of Southeast Dallas.

Dallas police early Friday booked Joshua Benz on a charge of evading arrest while Rachel Crowell was released after being arrested on two misdemeanor tickets.

Their 6-month-old girl and three other young children were released to a relative.

Police entered the trailer about 2:30 a.m. Friday after a man tried to evade them as they investigated a report of someone siphoning gas from vehicles at the trailer park.

Police said they saw roaches crawling on the children as they slept, a toilet backed up and full of feces and Crowell allegedly drunk and unable to stand.
