DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — The Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit busted a home for drugs with three children inside Monday morning.
Only 2 NEWS cameras were rolling as officers served a warrant in the 200 block of Sandhurst Drive. They seized cocaine and a gun and arrested a woman.
Police said the drugs and the weapons were within reach of three children who are between the ages of six and ten. Officials said they had easy access to the drugs and weapon if they were left unattended.
“It’s a very dangerous situation,” said Sergeant John Sullivan with Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit. “They do have firearms to protect themselves from other drug dealers and you know, good civilians as well. They’ll use it against them. And to have kids in the mix as well — That’s not a good accommodation, especially in a neighborhood like this when there are — it is a neighborhood with a lot of kids in it.”
Officers said they were led to the suspected drug dealer’s home after they received a tip about someone selling cocaine and heroin. They said the suspect mostly did business away from the house to avoid being caught.
The children found in the home are now staying with relatives.
Naquisha Bosley, 29, was arrested on drug possession and permitting drug abuse charges. She’s expected in court Tuesday.
