Authorities say a Vermont couple who bought drugs Massachusetts overdosed in an idling car with their children inside.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jacob Davis and 32-year-old Tamara Bruce, both of Manchester Center, were arraigned Monday. Davis was charged with operating under the influence of drugs and Bruce was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment of a child.

Police in Lawrence told The Eagle-Tribune a person walking by saw them in the idling car and thought they were dead over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The children were placed in the custody of the state's child welfare agency.

Davis and Bruce were ordered to be held on $2,500 bail.

Their next court date is Dec. 29 for a pre-trial hearing. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
