ELKVIEW, W.Va. — Two people were arrested Wednesday after drugs and two small children were found in a van that was in drive while the two suspects were passed out in the front seats, court records said.

Ayla Ross and Greg Ross are charged with child neglect creating risk of injury, a felony, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court. Gregory Ross also is charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Deputies said they were called to the scene on Rossville Lane in Elkview after receiving a call that a van was parked in the middle of the road.  Deputies said Gregory Ross was found sleeping in the driver’s seat, and Ayla Ross was found asleep in the passenger’s seat. The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department tweeted out that the van was in drive.  Two small children, ages 2 and 3, were in the back of the van, deputies said. Gregory Ross told deputies he stopped on the side of the road to go to the bathroom and when he got back into the van he had fallen asleep.  Ayla Ross said she was unaware that the two were asleep.

A K-9 search was conducted on the van. Deputies said they found what appeared to be crystal methamphetamine, and a field test for the drug was positive. Several articles of drug paraphernalia also were found in the van.

Both were transported to the South Central Regional Jail, where they are being held on $10,000 bond each.
