Alleged Drug Dealer Arrested For Selling Narcotics From Day Care
2014-02-07 · By Editor
Long Beach Police received information that narcotics were possibly being sold from a residence in the 3500 block of East 2nd Street and initiated an investigation. Through the course of the investigation, officers determined sales were conducted while the suspect operated a residential day care, with children present.
On January 3, 2014, East Division Directed Enforcement Officers served a search warrant and collected evidence, including cocaine, marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms and ecstasy. Pursuant to the search, an arrest warrant was issued for 49-year-old Debbie Louise Felix of Long Beach. Felix evaded officers over the next few weeks and it appeared she was in the process of relocating from her residence.
On January 31, 2014, Felix was arrested on two outstanding warrants. She was booked and held at the Long Beach City Jail on $110,000 bail until she was transferred to the Los Angeles County Jail. An arraignment is expected to be held this week.
The investigation also revealed the business operation lacked the appropriate licenses at the state and local levels. The Long Beach Police Department would like to remind parents to carefully screen potential childcare options to ensure children are left in a safe environment.
L.B.P.D. will continue to focus enforcement on narcotics sales in the ongoing effort to impact violent and property crime. Anyone with information regarding narcotics activity is urged to contact the Narcotics Hotline at (562) 570-7125.
