Day care closing after director’s drug arrest
WAVERLY (AP) — A day-care center where the director was arrested on drug charges is closing.
The owner of the Little Learners Preschool and Daycare on Technology Place in Waverly said the business was closing at 6 p.m. Tuesday due to recent events.
Police arrested 44-year-old Kelly Raney Hampton, of Waverly, on April 6 for misdemeanor possession of methamphetamine and marijuana and other charges.
Hampton, who had been the center’s longtime director, was charged after a police search of her apartment and vehicle allegedly turned up a plastic bag with suspected meth residue, an unlabeled bottle with two hydrocodone pills and marijuana.
Hampton was released from the Bremer County Jail after posting bond.
