Day care in Emporia closed after police discover drugs there

April 26, 2011


— A daycare center in Emporia has been closed after police found marijuana and cocaine there.

The Emporia Gazette reports that the Kansas Department of Health and Environment closed the Love, Laughter and Learning daycare this month. The closing was announced Monday.

The department says the drugs were found in the basement, where the children went during storms.

The health department says investigators who visited the home April 13 found daycare operator Tonya D. Rangel asleep with the front door open and four young children unsupervised.

A health department document says Rangel's boyfriend listed the residence as his home. The state had told Rangel that her boyfriend was prohibited from living at the home or being present during daycare hours.
