TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Police are investigating after they say a kindergarten student in New Jersey’s capital city brought 30 packs of heroin to school.
Police were called to the International Academy of Trenton on Monday.
Police tell The Trentonian newspaper a teacher thought the 5-year-old was playing with a candy wrapper, but turned out to be a packet filled with heroin. When she looked in his lunchbox, she found 29 other packets of the drug.
The boy was taken to a hospital, where he tested negative for opiates.
Police are trying to determine where the child got the drugs and no one has been charged.
