New York police have seized a massive amount of Fentanyl and other drugs that were hidden in a hatch at the Bronx daycare center, where a 1-year-old boy died Friday of a suspected overdose caused by exposure to opioids. International media report it.

Nicholas Dominici, this is the name of the little victim, he had been at the Divino Niño nursery in the Bronx for just a week and the Fentanyl had been hidden in the nap room under a mattress while he slept, according to the reconstruction of the police, who are investigating the case.

Three other children were hospitalized after being exposed to the powerful narcotic in the downtown Bronx. Urinalysis of one of the victims confirmed the presence of the drug. The owner of the kindergarten, Grei Mendez, 36, and his tenant, Carlisto Acevedo Brito, 41, are charged with federal charges of drug possession with intent to distribute resulting in death and conspiracy charges, prosecutors reported.

“We allege that the defendants poisoned four children and killed one because they were conducting a drug operation out of a day care,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Damien Williams said this week. Mendez’s wife was also formally indicted by a grand jury late Thursday. According to the police, the volume of drugs recovered may have killed 500,000 people. Investigators also found three presses used to package kilos of drugs.
