NEW CASTLE, Ind. -

A Texas couple has posted bail for two Pennsylvania parents facing neglect charges in Indiana.

The Henry County Sheriff tells Eyewitness News a man from Texas paid the bail for David and Rebecca Detjen. The Pennsylvania couple was arrested last Wednesday when a state trooper pulled over their rental truck near I-70 and SR 3 and found children in the cargo area.

Two of the children were found on top of a pile of boxes and there were two gas cans and 18 cats in the back of the truck, as well. Temperatures in New Castle the night of the arrest were near freezing.

It is not known what the relationship between the Texas couple and the Detjens may be.
