SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Four children are in protective custody after investigators said a Sanford couple used one of those children to sell drugs out of their home.
WFTV was there as Keyanta Capers and Marko Capers went before a judge at the jail Friday. Investigators said they have been watching the couple's activity at their apartment since September after receiving a tip that they were selling drugs.
"In the course of the investigation, they learned that not only were they selling pills from the apartment, at least on one occasion they used their son to facilitate one of those transactions," Kim Cannaday with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said.
The boy and three other children were removed from the home.
According to detectives, undercover deputies bought more than 28 grams of drugs, including prescription pills, at the Capers' apartment. Agents also found ten grams of the drug molly inside the home.
"It's just unacceptable to have a 13-year-old and pull them into your illegal drug activity. We're not going to tolerate that," Cannaday said.
The couple is being held at the Seminole County Jail on no bond.
