RT has the full story:

Two people were arrested in Pasadena, Maryland, and charged with multiple possession and reckless endangerment charges after authorities found drugs and drug paraphernalia at a home licensed as a child day care center.Bruce Edward Dabrasky Jr., 37, and Elizabeth Ann Ocus, 34, were arrested early Friday morning. Law enforcement in Anne Arundel County found $700-worth of crack cocaine, $300-worth of Oxycodone, trace amounts of heroin, marijuana, and other pills, according to local reports. The residence was a licensed child care facility.

Law enforcement said the search warrant was executed prior to the arrival of any children cared for at the home, WJZ-TVreported.

A representative with the Maryland State Department of Education Division of Childhood Development was present during the search. The county’s Department of Social Services was also notified.

In September, owners of a Connecticut home registered as a day care facility were busted for more than 600 marijuana plants in the home’s backyard. That same month, in Chicago, $9,000-worth of drugs were found at a day care center. In August, seven children were being cared for at a Quincy, Illinois, home where police found methamphetamine and cannabis.

On Thursday, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrested Dontrell Stephens for allegedly selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a day care center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Earlier this year, Stephens won $23 million in a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office after a deputy shot an unarmed Stephens in 2013, leaving him paralyzed. Stephens has yet to receive any of the money, as the award is under appeal.
