Day care center the site of arrests for drug crimes

When people think of a drug investigation, children's day care is not usually the first location that comes to mind. However, a day care recently ended up at the center of a North Carolina drug bust. According to reports, authorities seized over 100 pounds of marijuana and arrested two people for drug crimes at a Fayetteville child care center. The city also saw a second drug-related arrest the next day.

The bust was executed by the Fayetteville Police Department's Gang Unit. The location in question was a residential property where a child care center was also operated. The police waited until the child care center's operations had ended for the day before executing the warrant, so no children were present for the search.

Along with 100 pounds of marijuana, police reportedly found gummies and cookies laced with the substance. They also seized six guns. The owner and operator of the child care center was arrested along with two others in relation to these items. They face multiple drug charges, including trafficking heroin, cocaine and marijuana and maintaining a dwelling for keeping and selling controlled substances.

Another individual was arrested at a separate apartment the next day for similar crimes. He faces charges for drug crimes, as well as charges for carrying a concealed weapon. Those charged with drug crimes may have several different defense options available depending on the nature of the crime and the evidence involved. Working with a North Carolina attorney is a good idea for anyone involved in such a situation.
