Two Toledo residents were charged after police were called to their apartment for the report of a burglary there early Sunday, Dec. 2.

Joshua Dale Todd, 25, and Amanda Jean Short, 22, were cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, prohibited acts and two counts each of neglect of a dependent person.

Todd was being held in the Tama County Jail in Toledo under $7,500 cash only bond. Short was released on personal recognizance bond.

According to Toledo Police Chief Bob Kendall, officer Dan Quigley arrived at the couples' apartment in a complex at 1105 South Prospect Drive at 2:26 a.m. for a report of a burglary.

But no break-in was evident.

Instead, he found the pair "disoriented and confused" according to the report.

Emergency medical personnel were summoned and Todd and Short were taken to Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center for treatment.

Quigley then discovered both were allegedly under the influence of what was described as an illegal narcotic and this was coupled with children being present at the time in the apartment.

A search warrant was then obtained and illegal narcotics reportedly were found in the apartment during the search.
