Two people have been charged with selling drugs, and seven children were removed from a suspected drug house in Gary, Indiana Wednesday
Jeffery Howard Jr., 30, and Cheryl Hollins, 58, have been charged with child neglect and possession and dealing of a controlled substance. 
At about 7:30 a.m., a search warrant was executed at a home in the 600 block of West 41st Avenue.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office said the residence was identified as the location where a fatal overdose victim purchased narcotics in February.
During the search, officers confiscated two handguns and suspected narcotics — including heroin, cocaine, oxycodone and marijuana. 
Seven children between the ages of one and 15 were taken from the home and were placed into the custody of Child Protection Services.
