COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For a second time in less than a year, police on a Colorado Springs college campus are launching an investigation after suspected drugs were found at a children’s center.

The substance was found Wednesday at the Pikes Peak Community College Child Development Center in Colorado Springs. The-yet-to-be-identified drug was found near an entrance to a staff bathroom at the Centennial Campus.

A spokesperson for the college told Denver7 that no children were harmed or exposed to the substance, which is still undergoing testing to determine what type of drug was found. 

A similar incident occurred at the center back in October when someone found methamphetamine near the same area as Wednesday’s incident. No arrests were made at the time.

Campus police are again investigating this latest incident and have yet to identify any possible suspects or link the two cases. Campus officials say parents were notified on both occasions. 

The child development center offers services to children as young as infants all the way up to pre-school age. Both Colorado Springs locations are licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services.
