A Florence man is behind bars after officers found two bruised children during a welfare check.
Florence Police Sgt. Cliff Billingsley said officers responded Tuesday morning to Carver Heights Apartments for a child welfare call. Officers observed two children under the age of 3 with “multiple bruises,” Billingsley said.
Billingsley said after further investigation, Billy Crunk was arrested on two counts of willful abuse of a child. He is currently being held at the Lauderdale County Detention Center on $30,000 bond.
