15-year-old girl turns Sioux Falls pair in for meth, concerned for siblings

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls man and woman face drug and child abuse charges for allegedly making and distributing methamphetamine out of a home where six children lived.

Authorities say they were tipped off by a 15-year-old girl concerned about the safety of her siblings. Police arrested 34-year-old Tammara King and 41-year-old Eric Johnson on Tuesday, and the six children were taken into protective custody.

Three of the children are teenagers. The others are ages 10, 9 and 4.

Bond for King and Johnson was set at $10,000. It was not immediately clear if they had obtained attorneys, and a telephone listing for their home could not immediately be found Wednesday. A telephone listing for King at a different address was disconnected.
