Forty-one-year-old Susan Padilla was arrested Friday and charged with child neglect.

As of Friday afternoon, police still had a warrant out for her husband, John Padilla, Jr.

A tip from a neighbor led to Thursday’s search of their home near Rutherford High School. Once inside police found dozens of animals and three children, one of them covered in animal feces.

The children have been placed with the Department of Children and Families. The animals are at the Humane Society.

Police could decide next week on whether to also charge the couple with animal cruelty.
