CINCINNATI, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Employees at a Cincinnati church's day care allegedly gave children candy laced with an over-the-counter sleeping aid, police said.
Parents whose children attend the daycare were sent a letter Monday informing them that Covenant Apostolic Church's day care officials were investigating the allegation that melatonin was present in candy administered to the children, the Cincinnati Enquirer said.
Church officials said those employees no longer work at the day care, but have not commented further, the newspaper said.
Possible side effects of melatonin are dizziness, headaches, abdominal discomfort, confusion, sleepwalking and nightmares, the Mayo Clinic said.

What is wrong with these people? These people have violated the children's and parent's most basic trust; to care for them as there own. What is sad is that many of these parents will continue to take there children to this "Christian" day care.
Trust us were Christian
