Colombian police discovered a 14-year-old bound to a pole by iron chains held with padlocks, being guarded by his 11 year-old brother since the night before.

According to the youths, their father chained the teen to keep an alleged drug addiction under control.

The younger brother who cleaned, and fed his brothers told authorities their father had the only key to the padlocks restraining his brother.

According to police, this is the fifth minor found chained this year.
