Josh Rendon, Ebony Jackson Mugshot

This 16 and Pregnant pair have a lot of explaining—not to mention a lot of cleaning up, shaping up and growing up—to do.

Josh Rendon and Ebony Jackson's 2-year-old daughter, Jocelyn, was removed from their care by child services yesterday when the duo were arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and various drug-related charges.

Jacksonville, Ark., police confirm to E! News that the bust went down when narcotics officers and agents from the Little Rock Air Force Base Office of Special Investigation showed up to execute a search warrant at the couple's home on the base.

Unfortunately, drugs aren't all they reportedly found.

According to the arrest report, detectives turned up approximately 1 gram of synthetic marijuana along with several empty packages that once held the drug and paraphernalia, such as smoking pipes.

The house was full of flies and maggots and in "deplorable" condition, according to authorities, who reported that every room inside the residence had traces of dog and human feces on the walls and floor. They said it they saw feces on clothing lying around as well. Animal control was called to confiscate three dogs found on the premises.

Officials from the Arkansas Department of Human Services took Jocelyn into their custody.

Rendon, who joined the Air Force in 2009, and Jackson have been charged with misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, as well as felony counts of maintaining a drug premises and unauthorized use of another's property to facilitate a crime.

The duo were released from custody today after each posted an $8,000 bond.
