Police arrested two operators of a home-based child care facility in Fayetteville, North Carolina last week after finding a stash of various drugs, firearms, and tens of thousands of dollars in cash. The operation was conducted after regular operating hours, and no children were present at the time.

Following an investigation of drug trafficking organizations, on July 16, officers arrested 27-year-old Alvin Davis in an apartment in Fayetteville and seized marijuana, cocaine, and two handguns.

As the next step of their operation, police executed a search at Tori’s Playhouse, a daycare in Fayetteville run by the 34-year-old owner Victoria Everett, and 32-year-old Reshod Everett who also works for the United States Postal Service.

During their search, police found and seized more than one-hundred pounds of marijuana, various edibles, over half-a-kilogram of cocaine, an ounce of heroin, over $70,000 in cash, and a 2013 Audi Q7 SUV.

The state-licensed daycare had operated out of the home since June 13, 2017, and, while the owners had managed to pass an unannounced annual inspection last year with three out of five stars, they received two violations during a visit in May.

The Blaze reports that, according a letter from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the Everetts had not submitted the required information for background checks and Victoria had not completed the required hours of on-going training.

“On July 20, 2018, the Division of Child Development and Early Education received information regarding criminal activity at Tori’s Playhouse, a family child home operated by Victoria Everett,” reads the letter. “Based on information obtained, large amounts of narcotics and several firearms were found on the premises of the family child care home.”

According to WRAL, Victoria is being held at Cumberland County Detention Center under $287,000 secured bond on charges of trafficking marijuana by possession, trafficking in heroin by possession, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for keeping and selling controlled substances and conspiracy to traffic in heroin.

Reshod is also being held at Cumberland County Detention Center on similar charges under $430,000 secured bond.
