A Cedar Falls couple is charged with four counts of child endangerment and one count of drug possession after their toddler children were found by police earlier this morning (Monday).
Twenty-seven-year-old David Nissen and 26-year-old Lindsay Anne Koffler were arrested in the incident. Authorities say a Cedar Falls police officer found a 5-year-old boy at 2 o’clock this morning near the Cedar River and the train tracks near West First Street and Washington Street. The boy told the officer he was looking for his brothers.
A passerby located the two other boys on the train tracks near West First and Center Streets. A follow-up investigation by police and the Iowa Department of Human Services revealed where the boys lived and went to the home. Officers found an infant in the home and the couple unaware of the boys whereabouts. The four children were turned over to a family member by D-H-S. Nissen and Koffler are both being held at the Black Hawk County Jail.
