A five-year-old kindergarten boy in New Jersey brought 30 packets of heroin to school on Monday, police say. A teacher at the International Academy of Trenton caught the child playing with what she thought was a candy wrapper, when she found 29 other white packets in his lunchbox that turned out to be heroin, The Trentonian reported.
The student was taken to a local hospital, where he tested negative for opiates, police said. Detectives are trying to determine where the boy got the drugs and have not charged anyone yet, according to The Trentonian. Police officials declined to tell the outlet whether the boy is back in his parents’ custody or whether he is in the custody of Child Protective Services. READ MORE
