SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An in-home day care operator and her husband have been indicted on child abuse and drug charges after police say they found methamphetamine at their home.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/19nPjQj ) 33-year-old Jennifer Darger and 32-year-old Adam Darger were charged Wednesday in an eight-count indictment. Authorities allege in the indictment that the couple has been selling methamphetamine out of their child care center for the past year.

Sioux Falls officials suspended Jennifer Darger’s in-home license after the drug was discovered earlier this month.

Jennifer Darger’s teenage daughter told a counselor that the pair had been selling methamphetamine and that her mother recently relapsed into addiction. The daughter told authorities she was often asked to watch the children while her mother sold drugs.
