GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Two children were removed from a home in Mayfield, Kentucky after officers found drugs inside the home.

According to Deputy Dale Mason with the Graves County Sheriff's Department, a deputy was serving civil process papers to a home on Taylor Drive on Wednesday, May 31. When Mayra Riddle, 24, opened the door, the deputy said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana on Riddle and from the home itself.

The deputy secured the home and learned that there were two kids, ages 11 and 11-months, inside.

Investigators turned the children over to another family member as Riddle appeared to be under the influence.

During the execution of a search warrant on the home, deputies and the department's K-9 found marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. Officers also found marijuana hidden in Riddle's bra.

She faces charges of endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and tampering with physical evidence.
