A man was arrested Saturday morning after he allegedly sold drugs to an undercover informant from inside a daycare.

Bobby Gutierrez, 32, is accused of selling cocaine from Tiny Treasures, a daycare he runs with his wife inside their Antioch home in the 5000 block of Countryside Drive.

According to authorities, Gutierrez sold 14.8 grams of a white, rock-like substance to a confidential informant on September 12 inside the home.

Authorities also stated he sold 28 grams of a white, powdery substance from inside the home on September 23.

Both substances tested positive for cocaine.

Lamin Kallon who lives a few doors down from the daycare was shocked by the discovery.

“It's concerning… if your neighbor is selling dope that's disturbing,” said Kallon. 

Gutierrez was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free school zone, both felony drug offenses.

His arrest history dates back to 1998 and includes a charge from October 28 of unlawful possession of a firearm after a loaded AK-47 was found inside a residence during a search.

Gutierrez's wife Dana Gutierrez was arrested on a misdemeanor drug charge on September 26.

Devin Stone, spokesperson for the Tennessee Department of Human Services, said Tiny Treasures was not a licensed child care facility, nor was Mr. or Mrs. Gutierrez in the state system as a licensed provider.

“It's just sad and bazaar,” said Kallon.
