Daycare Operator Facing More Charges
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A local woman accused of selling drugs at her own daycare, could be facing additional charges.
By all accounts, 50-year-old Reanell Booker was a woman who could be trusted to care for children.
On Friday, she was arrested for allegedly dealing crack cocaine out of her daycare center in Homewood.
Her preliminary hearing was postponed Tuesday morning.
According to sources, she was selling between $1,500 and 2,000 worth of crack cocaine a week out of R&B Childcare Services.
When police raided the home, they found $6,000 worth of crack cocaine and $4,000 in cash.
Sources said, she may be facing welfare charges as well.
Booker allegedly would sell addicts crack cocaine in exchange for their state access benefit cards. She would then allegedly use the card to buy groceries.
She may also face additional drug charges for dealing drugs near a school.
She was released on her own recognizance and the preliminary hearing will take place in April.
