SMITHS STATION, Ala. – Three people have been arrested for aggravated child abuse after investigators discovered children living at a residence in South Alabama had been locked in cages on multiple occasions.

Investigators with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office conducted a welfare check Monday, Jan. 13, at a residence in the 5000 block of Lee County Rd. 246 in Smiths Station, near Dykes Towing, after they received information about a possible child abuse situation.

When investigators arrived at the residence, they made contact with four children, ages 3, 4, 10, and 11-years-old.
