Meth making ingredients are discovered in a home daycare.
A daycare establishment is not the type of place usually associated with illegal activity. However, a man from Davenport, Iowa was recently arrested for having meth making ingredients in his residence which also serves as a home daycare for children.
According to police, the 34-year-old suspect’s live-in girlfriend runs the daycare center, leading officials to contact the Department of Human Services. A police spokesperson couldn't confirm whether or not children were present in the daycare during the arrest, but authorities are still looking into the matter.
Meanwhile, the man of the house is now facing a felony charge of manufacturing methamphetamine. This isn’t the only troubling report involving drugs and children.
Earlier this year, a 29-year-old mother from New Zealand pleaded guilty to giving marijuana to her 3-month-old baby through breast feeding. She was charged with administering a Class C drug to a minor after police raided her home.
A court official stated "People often believe drug-related activities are victimless, but it affects the people around them."
