Day Care Owner Busted for Drugs and Adult Toys -- In Kids Play Area
Authorities found plenty of sex (toys), and drugs -- all that seemed to be missing was the rock 'n' roll. These discoveries would have been bad enough at any legitimate business, but this bust happened at a day care center in Pittsburgh.
When they raided the R&B Childcare Services on Rosewood Street in the Homewood neighborhood early Friday morning, agents found several bags of sex toys and pornography lying around the children's play area, as well as $6,000 worth of crack cocaine, $4,000 in cash and two small scales.
The owner of the day care center, Reanell Booker, 50, was taken into custody. She is fully licensed by the state to run the day care facility and take care of children, which makes you wonder who granted the license and how long ago did they check her out? Booker faces felony drug charges and could face child endangerment charges as well, the police note. She has no prior arrests on her record.
The raid happened at 7AM, before the 10-15 kids enrolled at the school were dropped off by their parents, according to a report by WPXI in Pittsburgh. When they arrived, they were greeted by a sign on the door that said, "Closed due to emergency." Leigh Stubblefield, who owns a day care center nearby, was on hand passing out fliers for those who were caught in a bind and had nowhere to take their kids. Now that was a smart career move.
