When police officers saw the footage, they were alarmed. They immediately called on the suspect to turn himself in for his reckless actions.

DATE OF ARREST: December 23
THE DETAILS: On November 13, authorities in Colorado received reports that a daycare was accepting way more children than they could handle. Authorities began investigating right away.

Police conducted a search of the daycare and were shocked when they found a false wall in one of the rooms. Inside the hidden room, they found several kids under three years old. No one was injured, and it didn’t appear that they were being held against their will. Despite that, authorities concluded that the daycare owner put all the children in harm’s way by attempting to care for too many at one time. Now, she has been officially arrested and charged with child abuse. Three of her employees were also taken into police custody for knowingly violating the law.
