Three people in Georgia were arrested after children were found with flea bites in a home in Riverdale.

Police officers and officers with the sheriff’s office were serving a warrant at a home on Fairway Pointe Drive when they noticed four children between the ages of 4 and 7 with flea bites.

“Deputies were told that the bites were from mosquitos, but the deputies and officers determined they actually were from fleas,” according to a release from the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office.

Workers with the Department of Family and Children Services were called to take custody of the children.
