Richmond Police have arrested an Ohio woman on drug charges after her and her two young children were found in a bedroom with a man who had died from an overdose.

Police have charged 22-year-old Kristen Johnson with possession of a controlled substance, wanton endangerment, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say they were called to this mobile home on Dixie plaza around 9 a.m. Saturday morning for the overdose. Police say when they arrived they found the man unconscious on the floor of the bedroom.

Johnson and her two children were also in the bedroom along with crack cocaine and paraphernalia. The resident of the home says she's a distant relative of the man who died and was letting the couple and kids stay the night. She says the man was the children's father and came up from Tennessee to see Johnson and the kids.

Police say Johnson is not being charged with the man's death...only drug related charges.
The name of the man has not been released.

The resident of the home says the children were taken into protective custody.
