ABILENE, TX – On February 7, 2013, at about 9:15 pm, officers with the Abilene Police Department (APD) responded to an assist-agency call at a residence in the 100 block of Virginia Street at Dyess Air Force Base. APD had been notified by a Dyess representative requesting APD assistance at a residence that was described as unsanitary and containing animal feces. Officers and base officials were given access to the residence. Officers initially discovered seven dogs living at the residence and learned an active duty member was living there with two adult females, one being the member’s spouse. The preliminary investigation revealed unsanitary conditions at the residence that presented an immediate danger to three children, ages seven, four and 11- months, also residing at the home. Officials with Dyess Security Forces apprehended the male active-duty member. APD officers arrested Britni N. Valdez (DOB: 09/25/86) and Kayla J. Phillips (DOB: 06/24/90) for three counts each of state-jail felony Child Endangerment. Child Protective Services responded to assist and took protective custody of the three children. The three children did not require immediate medical attention.

The investigation continues and APD is working directly with Dyess officials as part of the criminal investigation. Because we are still in the middle of this investigation, more details may become available as the investigation allows.
