Two children were removed from a home near Bermuda Dunes Thursday morning after a man and woman were arrested on grand theft and drug charges.
According to a release from the La Quinta Police Department, officers served a search warrant in the 79100 block of Avenue 42 in the unincorporated area of Bermuda Dunes at about 10 a.m.
The search warrant stems from a recent incident of theft in the 79000 block of Highway 111 in La Quinta.
Christopher Michael Lynn, 29, and 27-year-old Sylvia Delores Nuno, both from Bermuda Dunes, were taken into custody after officers found small amounts of heroin and meth at the residence while serving the search warrant.
According to police, Lynn was charged with grand theft, fraudulent use of credit cards, possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony probation violation.
Nuno was arrested for grand theft and theft with priors, officers said in the release.
Riverside County Child Protective Services was called in to take care of the two young children found at the home. Officers didn't elaborate whether the children were in the custody of Lynn or Nuno, or both.
There was also no additional information regarding the grand theft charges which led to the search warrant.
