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.
