Wichita Police have placed a baby in protective custody after they found the child ill and living in filthy conditions.

Last night, a relative of the child in Oklahoma City called WPD, asking them to check the welfare of the baby and mother.

When officers arrived at the apartment near 9th and West Street, they found a 4-month-old suffering from flu-like symptoms. Police also said the apartment had roaches and bed bugs.

Officers spoke with the mother, who admitted to doing drugs recently, and took her in for further questioning. She has not been arrested.

The baby's current condition is unknown.
