Cops: Pa. man turned mom's day care center into heroin den
SHAMOKIN, PA - Police say a Pennsylvania man turned his mother's day care center into a heroin den once the kids left for the day.
The Shamokin News Item reports Tuesday that Ryan Varano told police he and another man would use Jesus' Lil Helpers Daycare to sell and use heroin on nights and weekends.
Police say they used children's tables, chairs and cabinets to package heroin and loaded syringes.
The 28-year-old and two other men were arrested Saturday after someone at the daycare building called police to report an overdose.
Police and emergency workers revived 37-year-old Christian Kehler with CPR and naloxone.
Varano, Kehler and Frederick Russo are charged with criminal conspiracy and possession with intent to deliver.
Online court records didn't include information on lawyers to comment on the charges.
