BENTON COUNTY (KFSM) – Six people were arrested after meth was found at an in-home day care in Benton County, authorities say.
An anonymous tip led to authorities finding the meth on Wednesday (July 15), according to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.
The in-home day care is at 559 Buffalo Lane in Bethel Heights, deputies said.
Detectives found 32 grams of meth, a gun, used syringes and other drug paraphernalia inside the daycare.
No children were present at the time of the search, and deputies are attempting to contact the parents of children who were enrolled in the day care.
“If you feel like your child has been watched in this home of if you’ve used this day care, we would like you to call the [Benton County] sheriff’s office so we can speak with you,” said Deputy Keshia Guyll.
Guyll said the day care did not care for enough children to have to licensed as a business.
The following individuals were arrested in the case:
