— Six children between the ages of 1 and 10 were taken into protective custody after the Turlock Police Department’s Narcotics Enforcement Team served a search warrant in the 400 block of Bernell Avenue on Wednesday.

Detectives found evidence of drug sales and seized about 14 grams of heroin, Sgt. Stephen Webb said in a news release. The living conditions were unsuitable and dangerous for the children detectives found there, Webb said.

Diana Servin, 30, was arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin for sale, and felony child endangerment. The children were taken by Child Protective Services.
