(Scroll down for video) A father and son endangered little children by selling cocaine out of their home, where they also ran a child care center, according to police in California.

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer announced that his office has filed a lawsuit, seeking an injunction against the owners of the Highland Park home, where the large scale cocaine sales took place along with an unlicensed child care business.

Within the past month, more than 20 kilograms of cocaine worth an estimated $430,000 in wholesale value were recovered at the property.

"The rampant drug activity we allege at this home is dangerous to the community, and especially alarming because little kids are caught up in the middle of it. Imagine if your children were being cared for in the same house where cocaine was being sold," said Feuer.

The lawsuit names 48-year-old Felipe Talamante and 20-year-old Garcia Talamante, the owners of the multi-unit residential property located at 5215 Marmion Way in Northeast Los Angeles.

For at least the past two years, the property allegedly has been known by law enforcement as a site for the distribution of narcotics, and heavily frequented by drug users and buyers.

The location allegedly is also being used as an unlicensed child care center for children between two and seven years old, and is located within 900 feet of Monte Vista Elementary School.

In 2015, a search warrant was executed on the property, resulting in the arrest of defendant Felipe Talamante and the recovery of 20 kilograms of cocaine.

In May 2017, a second search warrant was served, resulting in the recovery of an additional 20 kilograms of cocaine as well as two rocks of cocaine and digital sales.

Defendant Felipe Talamante was again taken into custody for narcotics sales and child endangerment.

Investigators observed children being dropped off at the home throughout the day as part of an illegal day care business and numerous children were observed playing on the patio where criminal activity was taking place.

The recovered cocaine was found in the same room with a child size mattress, where the children would allegedly nap.

Felipe boasted that he had 20 kilograms of cocaine “direct from Mexico” for $430,000.

The father and son were charged with conspiracy to possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
