MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A Montgomery couple faces multiple felony charges after police say their five young children tested positive for cocaine.

Al.com reports that 40-year-old Eric Morshea Heath Sr. and 31-year-old Cordelia Adair face five counts of chemical endangerment of a child.

Montgomery Police Capt. Regina Duckett said authorities were contacted by the Department of Human Resources on Sept. 6 about possible drug activity at a residence where children lived.

According to arrest affidavits, the children -- ages 4 through 13 -- tested positive for cocaine.

Adair was arrested by U.S. Marshals on Sept. 21. Heath was arrested on Monday. Both were being held Tuesday in the Montgomery County Jail.

Heath’s bond is set at $75,000; Adair’s, $37,500. It was unclear if they had an attorney who could comment for them.
