LITTLE RIVER, SC (WMBF) - A man and woman have been arrested in Horry County after police allege the two were raising a 2-year-old and 10-year-old in unfavorable living conditions.

Horry County Police were dispatched to a home along Mica Avenue on Sunday at 11 a.m. after a woman claimed someone was trying to kill her. Upon arrival, police learned the woman had called local law enforcement several times within the previous 36 hours to report similar incidents.

After being unable to expand on her fears, the woman admitted to police that she and her boyfriend had been smoking crack Saturday night. The woman told police two children were in her custody at the time she and her boyfriend had smoked crack, prompting a search of the house by police.

During the search, officers located prescription pills in unsecured bottles, two kitchen-style knives on the floor of the master bedroom, and only ice cream and peanut butter inside of the house.

When police questioned the woman as to the location of any drugs or paraphernalia, the woman told police she had flushed it down the toilet.

Police ordered the woman's 2-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son into emergency protective custody by the Department of Social Services after she advised she preferred to seek medical and mental help.

The woman, identified as Tracy Douds, 33, of Little River, was transported to the Grand Strand Medical Center for an evaluation and later issued an arrest warrant for unlawful conduct towards a child.

Douds' boyfriend, identified as Adam Wells, 36, of Little River, was also issued a warrant for unlawful conduct towards a child.
