A man was charged with child neglect Wednesday because authorities claim he took the kids with him while he attempted to fill multiple prescriptions at pharmacies around Venice in order to pay back a drug debt, according to the Venice Police Department.

Robert Thomas Delarue, 34, of Venice was charged with two counts each of child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a report states, alleging that Delarue brought the children along during an effort to retrieve enough Xanax from local pharmacies in order to pay back $500 that was owed by his girlfriend.
