Drug bust reveals house of squalor

Haverhill, Mass. -- Four young children were rescued from a house of squalor in Haverhill.
For nearly a year, police received noise complaints and complaints about living conditions at a house on Chadwick Street.
Police obtained a search warrant and found drugs and deplorable living conditions.
Some Chadwick Street residents were happy to see their neighbors gone.
"Cars there all hours of the night mostly, two, three o'colock in the morning," said Debbie, a concerned neighbor.
Lori Michael, 34, and her boyfriend, Roberto Javier Alvarez, 20, were arrested for allegedly selling drugs and are facing several other drug charges.
The small bust had big impact for the four children living inside.
The children were placed in the care of relatives.
Police said the house was in horrible condition with pet feces and trash everywhere.
Some neighbors defended the children's mother saying that when she found out he was selling drugs she tried to kick him out of the house.
The State Department of Social Services is investigating.
