Tammy Pierce charged with child neglect after children found with no power, no food, bug bites

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Lake Worth Police officers say they found two children living in a home with no power.  Tammy Pierce, their 26-year-old mother, has been arrested on child neglect charges.

Police were called to Pierce's home on Thursday. 

There, they discovered her lying on the floor, after officers say she drank too much at a gentleman's club where she works as a dancer.

Police say Pierce's children were hungry and covered in bug bites when they arrived. 

The house was dirty and cigarette butts throughout. 

A probable cause affidavit states that the contents of the refrigerator were spoiled and that when the door was opened, flies came out.

The children are now being cared for by their godmother and the Department of Children and Families has been notified.
