A former Florida Department of Children and Families child protective investigator is among the two suspects arrested Friday on child neglect and drug charges in Osceola County.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at a home on Hollyhock Court.
During their search, agents found 26 marijuana plants, 8 grams of marijuana, counterfeit money and a handgun.
Deputies said the home was in a deplorable condition, with overflowing trash and roaches and spiders on the walls and beds.
Agents discovered six children resided at the home, but they were not there at the time.
Homeowners Randy and Kysa Donawa were charged with production of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and six counts of child neglect.
DCF fired Kysa Donawa upon learning of her arrest. The agency said she was hired as a child protective investigator May 2, 2014. She was assigned to a child protective investigator training class. She was not carrying a caseload at the time of her dismissal, DCF said.
A copy of Kysa Donawa’s resume indicates she worked at DCF two times prior to her most recent employment.

Her job description said she is supposed to investigate allegations of child abuse and neglect and protect children from it. Kysa Donawa is now charged with several counts of child neglect.
