Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) -- A couple who appeared on the first season of the MTV series 16 and Pregnant had their two-year-old child taken from them Tuesday and were arrested following a police search of their home at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas. According to E! Online, authorities who executed a search warrant at the home of 19-year-olds Joshua Rendon and Ebony Jackson-Rendon say they found one gram of synthetic marijuana, empty packaging that had contained the drug, and smoking pipes. Police further claim they found feces on the floors and walls, as well as maggots throughout the home.

The Arkansas Department of Human Services took custody of the couple's two-year-old daughter, Jocelyn. Three dogs were also removed from the home. Rendon, a member of the Air Force, and Jackson-Rendon face various drug-related charges, as well as a child endangerment charge. They have both been released on eight thousand dollars bond.
