The operators of Little Darlings Day Care were arrested Sunday in connection with drug charges.
Siloam Springs police officers went Sunday to the home of Wayne and Barbara Hartley at 1110 Country Lane for a welfare check on the occupants, according to a press release provided by the Siloam Springs Police Department. The Hartleys ran the day care out of their home.
Police observed what they believed were marijuana plants, and after getting a search warrant officers seized 13 harvested marijuana plants; 2 pounds of marijuana; 19 firearms; 75 grams of Kratom and more that $31,000 in cash, according to the press release.
The Hartleys were being held Tuesday in the Benton County Jail after being arrested in connection with manufacturing a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms and possession of a controlled substance.
Detectives are also looking into any potential child endangerment charges, according to the press release. Police are asking anyone with children who attended the day care to contact Detective Ron Coble with the Siloam Springs Police Department at 479-524-4118.General News on 10/10/2018
