Nearly four years after he was arrested on drug trafficking charges, a North Carolina man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for using a daycare center as a front to sell illegal drugs.

Reshod Jamar Everett was arrested in July 2018 after officers found marijuana, cocaine and a loaded handgun on him during a traffic stop, prosecutors say. They later searched the 36-year-old's home, which he and his wife used to run a daycare business, and found $65,000 in cash, eight firearms, ammunition, THC edibles, THC wax, Tramadol and "drug packing materials," according to prosecutors.

"Investigators were able to build a comprehensive case demonstrating that he was responsible for distributing vast quantities of illegal drugs in the Fayetteville area," says Michael Easley, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina. "The fact that he stored drugs, cash and loaded, high-powered AR rifles at an in-home daycare further underscores the danger that Everett presented to the community at large."
