Cockroaches in Kid’s Backpack & Abuse Report Leads to Arrest of Volusia County Parents

Samantha Acker, 37, and Christopher Rounds, 36, were arrested on four counts of child neglect, after one of their children showed up to school dirty, with cockroaches in their backpack, according to Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. Four children, ages 8, 10, 15 and 16, lived in the home, deputies said.

The Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of child abuse from a domestic abuse hotline.
