NEBO, N.C. — Police arrested a North Carolina couple after four children tested positive for methamphetamine.

Kimberly Dawn Lowery, 29, and Nathan Todd Vallini, 27, are each charged with four counts of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, WGHP reported.

McDowell County deputies said four children — ranging in ages from 4 to 12 — were living with the suspects when a relative filed a complaint about possible drug use in the house.

As part of an investigation that began last month, the children were tested for the presence of methamphetamine in their systems. All four tests came back positive.

Lowery and Vallini are scheduled to appear in court in McDowell County on April 25.
