STANLEY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities have confiscated a marijuana plant and firearms from a North Carolina property where a man was digging a deep hole that collapsed on two children, including his daughter.
The bodies of 6-year-old Chloe Jade Arwood and 7-year-old James Levi Caldwell were pulled Monday from a 24-foot-deep pit in the town of Stanley, outside of Charlotte.
Rescuers had been digging for the children since Sunday, when the girl's father, Jordan Arwood, called 911.
Later on Monday, sheriff's deputies removed firearms and the marijuana plant from the mobile home. The 31-year-old father is a felon who is not allowed to have guns. He was convicted in 2003 for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
