Days after a toddler’s ‘overdose’ death, cops discover fentanyl in a NYC nursery, enough to kill 500,000 people

<p>Days after a kid died there from exposure to the drug, the New York City Police discovered a “large quantity” of fentanyl, other narcotics, and paraphernalia hidden beneath a trapdoor at a nursery.</p>
<p>According to a report by the BBC, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) posted images of more than a dozen plastic bags containing brown and white granules on social media. They’ve also started an investigation.</p>
<p>At the daycare center last Friday, a one-year-old youngster overdosed on drugs and passed away. The Divino Nio childcare first claimed that numerous kids were ill, but the NYPD has now taken the persons in charge of the facility into custody.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-195673″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-insufficient-funds-in-your-bank-account-you-can-still-pay-later-with-upi-download-.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com insufficient funds in your bank account you can still pay later with upi download” width=”1229″ height=”688″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-insufficient-funds-in-your-bank-account-you-can-still-pay-later-with-upi-download-.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-insufficient-funds-in-your-bank-account-you-can-still-pay-later-with-upi-download–150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1229px) 100vw, 1229px” title=”Days after a toddler's 'overdose' death, cops discover fentanyl in a NYC nursery, enough to kill 500,000 people 3″></p>
<p>Nicholas Dominici passed away after allegedly inhaling fentanyl that was allegedly placed in the nap room beneath a mat while he was sleeping, according to the police, who detained them. The hospital also took in three more kids. The substance was found in their system during a urine test.</p>
<p>According to authorities, the daycare center’s 36-year-old owner Grei Mendez and her 41-year-old renter Carlisto Acevedo Brito are now accused of conspiring to sell drugs with the purpose to cause death.</p>
<p>These two defendants, according to Manhattan US Attorney Damien Williams, poisoned four newborns, killing one of them. Williams stated, “We say the defendants poisoned four kids, and one of them died, because they were operating a narcotics enterprise out of a childcare center.</p>
<p>The two were already officially charged by a grand jury. They are being detained without bond and, if found guilty, may receive a sentence of life in jail.</p>
<p>The narcotics that were discovered may kill at least 500,000 people, according to the police.</p>
<p>Mendez says her husband’s cousin is involved and that she is ignorant that the narcotics were stored in the nursery. After discovering the children were sick, Mendez repeatedly phoned her husband before dialing 9-1-1, according to surveillance video. Her husband Brito entered the nursery and took four large shopping bags out.</p>
<p>According to a BBC investigation, Mendez reportedly erased almost 20,000 text messages from her phone before being arrested, but those communications were eventually retrieved.</p>
<p>Brito is now untraceable. After the encounter, he left the area. He has been named as a co-conspirator in court filings. Due to fentanyl, a synthetic opioid 50 times more potent than heroin, drug and substance misuse related mortality are dramatically increasing in the US.</p>
<p>In the US, over 100,000 drug overdose deaths occurred, with 66% of those deaths thought to be related to fentanyl.</p>
