 Three persons face federal charges By TANYANIKA SAMUELS an CHRISTINE VENDEL

Three Kansas Citians faced federal drug charges Thursday after police raided a daycare and found crack cocaine and two loaded guns — one within reach of children. Federal prosecutors charged Valeriece Ealom, 34; Clifford Dorsey, 43, and Megashia C. Jackson, 27, with conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine. All three are in federal custody. “You expect kids to be safe when you take them to day care,” said police Capt. Rich Lockhart. “Not only were drugs accessible here, there were loaded guns. That made for a very dangerous situation for these kids.” Court records alleged that Ealom sold crack cocaine from her home at 2920 Wabash Ave., where she ran a day care. After learning of the alleged drug sales, Kansas City police arranged for undercover officers to make three buys, according to Jackson County court records.

Police said they carefully planned the raid because of the children. Authorities said there were seven to nine children at the home. Kansas City police said they ranged in age from 4 months to 6 years old.

Earlier this summer, one of Ealom's family members was charged in a crime. Her 15-year-old son was accused of shooting a 2-year-old girl in the head June 30. The boy, Terry Hutton, was certified last month to stand trial as an adult in Jackson County Circuit Court. He faces two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action He is accused of firing an assault rifle down Linwood Boulevard.
