EXPORT (KDKA) – A man was arrested after locking his three young children out of the house in Westmoreland County and telling them to go look for seashells in the street.

According to police, the incident happened at a home in the 200-block of Mamont Road in Export on Saturday.

The man, 36-year-old Charles Seibel, was allegedly highly intoxicated when he kicked the children out of the house.

Police say Seibel told the kids to go look for seashells and not come back.

The children – ages 6, 8, and 14 – eventually walked about half of a mile and asked for help at another home.

Police were called and responded to Seibel’s home.

Officers found Seibel asleep on a bed in the basement and took him into custody.

Seibel is now facing child endangerment charges.
