ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- Police said 22-year-old autistic twins were allegedly being kept locked in their Rockville, Md. basement by their parents.
It all started Thursday morning when Montgomery County Police went to the house located at 1602 Crawford Dr. in Rockville, to serve a warrant for an unrelated incident.
According to the State's Attorney's Office, as officers walked through the home, they stumbled upon a door in the basement that was bolted shut from the outside.
Officers unlocked the door and went inside. According to authorities, they found the twins in that room, they say, had an overwhelming smell of urine.
The room had no furniture, only a single bed comforter sitting on the hard tile floor. There was one light in the room that did not function.
