NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Two people have been arrested for allegedly selling drugs out of a home that houses a daycare center.

Authorities arrived at the basement of 85-09 88th Ave in Woodhaven at 5 a.m. on Thursday, to execute a search warrant.

The daycare center is known as My Precious Moments, but authorities say the owner’s son was storing drugs in the basement.

Police say they found 4 ounces of marijuana, 7 ounces of Molly, and $2,438.

Neighbors say they had no idea what was going on.

“It’s unbelievable, it’s crazy, I mean they got kids over here,” one man told 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern.

Two men present during the search were arrested for multiple counts of drug possession and sales.

Michael Gomez, 24, was charged with criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance and marijuana, and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17. Selestino Rodriguez, 23, was also arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and marijuana.

As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported Friday, the sales were also made in the vicinity of two Catholic elementary schools, which adds to the penalties.
