Report: Kids found living in storage locker

A storage locker - a place where people usually keep the items they don't want in their home - was home to one New Jersey woman and her two young sons, according to a report today from the Trenton Times. 

When 27-year-old Sheena Johnson was arrested for slashing her boyfriend's tires this morning, she told police her boys were inside of a locker at the Extra Space Storage facility in Ewing, where the family lived, the Times said. Ewing is about 35 miles away from Philadelphia and just five miles outside of Trenton.

When cops went to check out her claims, they allegedly found her sons, ages 5 and 10, inside of a storage locker there. Johnson had allegedly left the children alone inside of the cluttered locker this morning when she went to slash her boyfriend's tires.

According to the Times, the storage facilities are 30-feet wide, do not have heat and cost $240 a month.

Calls to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office and the Ewing Police Department were not immediatley returned.
