Police say third-grader brought heroin to school

Published: Wed, April 14, 2010 @ 5:58 p.m.

WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police near Pittsburgh say they have confirmed that more than 60 small bags a third-grader was handing out to classmates were full of heroin.

The 8-year-old boy brought the bags to Turner Elementary School on Tuesday before a teacher discovered them.

Wilkinsburg police said at a news conference today that some of the bags were found empty in a trash can but there was no evidence any of the children ingested the drugs.

School officials sent a letter home to parents about the incident.

Police say the bags had the words “trust me” stamped on them and would have a street value of about $1,000.

Police have contacted the boy’s parents. The investigation into where the boy got the drugs is continuing.

Was this in retrospect of Barack Obama's comment while campaigning that it was okay for children to do drugs? Myself was looking for the duck tape so I could close the mouth that said it is okay for children to become addicted and yes even die from overdoses. Wonder if B.O. would let his daughters do drugs? Maybe the child had seen other children take drugs and decided it might be fun? Do hope they find where the child got the drug bags from. Posted by Donna
