LARGO — Largo police walked into a hotel room Tuesday night and found two men, one of them smoking marijuana, an array of drugs for sale, two guns, and a 3-year-old child who was within arm’s reach of a loaded gun, according to records.

The two men, identified as Christopher Daniel Davis, 26, and Kevin Davis, 23, are cousins. Each was charged with dealing Clonazepam, morphine, MDMA, and crack cocaine, records say. Because they have criminal records, they were charged also with two counts each of being a felon in possession of firearms, and one count each of being a felon in possession of ammunition, the records say.

Christopher Davis also was charged with child neglect as the caregiver of the 3-year-old, records show. His relationship with the child and the sex of the child were unavailable.

Police found Christopher Davis smoking marijuana when they entered the room, and also charged him with marijuana possession, records show.

In addition to the drugs, investigators found $1,024 in cash in the hotel room at the Roadway Inn, 16405 U.S. 19, where the men live, along with two firearms, one of which was loaded with five rounds of ammunition. That gun was within the toddler’s reach, records say.
