The owner of a Bay Shore daycare center and three others have been arrested following a narcotics investigation in the area, police said.
After receiving information from the community, Suffolk County police conducted an investigation into Channel Daycare, located at 206 Delaware Avenue in Bay Shore. Police found that narcotics were being dealt out of the residence.
A search warrant of the daycare center was conducted at approximately 5:30 a.m. on April 17, where detectives seized two loaded 9-mm handguns with magazines, ammunition, approximately 600 grams of cocaine, 60 grams of fentanyl, packaging materials consistent with drug sales and over $173,000.
The daycare homeowner, Magodeiry Landron, 50, was arrested and charged with four felony charges for drug and weapon possession and two misdemeanors for criminal use of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child.
Her son, Rafael Landron, 34, also a resident of the home, was charged with six felony charges for drug and weapon possession, and four misdemeanor charges for criminal use of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.
A child related to both individuals was in the house at the time the warrant was executed and was released into the custody of a family member.
Not long after, detectives executed a second search warrant at the home of Magodeiry Landron’s son, Anthony Dominguez, located at 4 Arbell Drive in Brentwood.
There, police seized $66,000, a 9-mm Glock with two extended magazines and ammunition. Two children who live at the home were released into the custody of the family, and Dominguez, 29, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Dominguez’s girlfriend, Crystal Rivera, 30, a resident of the home, was also arrested and charged with criminal possession of a firearm, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Suffolk County Police Emergency Service and Canine Sections were on the scene during the execution of both warrants. The New York State Office of Children and Family Services and Suffolk County Child Protective Services were both notified.
All four individuals were scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on April 18.
