The two teens and another juvenile were taken into protective custody and released to the care of the DSHS Child Protective Services, according to a release by the Moxee Police Department.

Police are not releasing the names of the suspects. Both were booked into the Yakima County Jail and face several felony charges.

The case has been sent to the Yakima County Prosecutor's Office. Police are requesting charges of Child Endangerment and Possession of Methamphetamine and Marijuana charges.
