Toys, Drugs, Guns: What Police Found In A Daycare

Police in North Carolina say they found cocaine and guns when they raided a home day care in Durham.

Officers say they found 301 grams of cocaine and two guns when they raided the home Tuesday morning. The operator and a man were
arrested.

A 2-year-old and a 13-month-old child were in the day care.

The owner, 25-year-old Agostina Mabel Pomiro, is charged with cocaine trafficking, drug possession, possessing drugs at a day care center, child abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia. Police say Pomiro is the mother of one of the children.

Victor Antonio Garcia is charged with cocaine trafficking, selling drugs to police, possession with intent to sell drugs and possession drugs at a day care center.

Both were being held at the Durham County jail. It was unclear if they had attorneys.

    Different "Anonymous" Maria. I don't look at every Hispanic individual and assume that they are drug traffickers/dealers. I actually interact with a lot of them every day at work, and I have good relationships with some of them. But, having said that we all know about the problems with drug cartels south of the border. And, yes, there is a huge drug problem here in the U.S. also, but if the U.S. wants to help the problem here I think they should investigate the backgrounds of immigrants a little more in depth in order to curtail more drugs/drug-related individuals from entering our country. I would say the same thing for people attempting to traffic illegal prescription drugs from Canada. That's all I'm saying.

    To concerned, I know the incident was in Durham, you don't have to remind me. I was just saying Greenville (including Rocky Mount, and Jacksonville), because of all the types of crimes there, which still is not as bad as Durham. You may have a point about day care HOMES, but they are way more known the bigger the city gets. When you have a smaller area, people get to know each other better more easily. If parents does not trust a day care owner enough to create a safe environment for their kids, then the owner will not have enough business to operate on. What you call day care HOMES is going to be ran by someone who is already a trustworthy friend of the parents. If the parents suspected drugs running around, they would get somebody else to take care of the kids. When I was little, before starting Kindergarten my M-F caretaker, just like several others in a HOME would not take more than 4-5 kids. I do not refer to this as a day care at all until it goes in a commercial building.

    To Sam: The day care home was stated in the article that it was in DURHAM not here in Greenville btw. And I know how small Martin county is. It is just as small as Bertie County is but you do not know if someone is running a day care out of their home now do you? You do not know everyone in Williamston. It could happen in the next neighborhood over from you, that my friend you do not know!!!! Like I stated before, these day care HOMES are everywhere not just in DURHAM.

    How about we stop focusing on racial groups and think of the children who were in this home. Did they witness the use or selling of drugs? Were guns and drugs used around them? Parents should really check out a faciltiy or home before enrolling thier children. Many times parents do not know what occur because they fail to pay attention to what is going on. I visit facilities all the time and I am amazed at the conditions of these child care facilities and wonder what parents are thinking enrolling thier children there. Were they even licensed?

    Yeah, drugs and violence were already here I think. Are you saying that a certain group of people are to blame for ALL crimes? You get that info from a NAME?

    Hey Concerned, I expect Williamston (my hometown) does not have drugs or guns in the daycares. Williamston is a tiny town compared to Greenville that has only three day care centers and the owners of those day care centers are not only regular churchgoers, but one is a deacon in the church that I go to, and he does not own any guns. The other day care owner is good friends with a cousin of mine and she has told me herself that she has a big problem with drugs running around, and she does not drink or do any kind of tobacco. Oh yeah, she has also been involved with helping the Martin County Crimestoppers. The third day care owner has done some mission work in Mexico and Africa(and probably other places as well), helped out with the Cropwalk and Relay for Life out of Martin County. The only way Williamston could have that is if the ownership changed or if there was another child care center to open around here. You can ask some other Martin County citizens about that.
