According to a report by FOX 35, the Gainesville Police Department has accused Dustin Huff, 35, and Yurui Xie, 31, of keeping their kids at home in tiny cages while they worked.

The pair reportedly showed the cops their handmade cages during a property search, looking unconcerned. Gainesville Police Sergeant John Pandak was surprised to uncover cages where children were confined, particularly when left home alone.

The University of Florida pair Dustin Huff and Yurui Xie, who sometimes worked overnight, are said to have kept their kids in a homemade cage made of pressure-treated 2x4s, according to the Miami Herald.
