Texas daycare caught doping kids to make them fall asleep
Texas police were called to a daycare center after concerned employees notified them that the owner was serving the children a 'special milk' which was doped with a flavored antihistamine that was used to induce sleep each day.
"Kimberly Lane, owner of the Luv and Learning Daycare allegedly mixed the over-the-counter antihistamines in a large container of milk before serving it to the children, according to the Van Alstyne Police Department," reports MyFoxDFW.
Investigators with the police department arrived at the Luv and Learning Daycare Center Wednesday morning before Lane had a chance to serve the 'special milk' to the children who ranged in age from infant to four-years-old. Lt. Tim Barnes with the Van Alstyne Police said, "they could smell the flavored antihistamines in the milk product."
there was a referral made to Child Protective Services (CPS) over the weekend in regards to the activity at the daycare center, which was licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Daycare Division. Police obtained a search warrant and arrest warrant for Kimberly Lane and Luv and Learning Daycare Center.
Lane was charged with 16 felony counts of endangerment to a child. If convicted, she faces a maximum two years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000 for each count
