Preschooler found with bags of crack cocaine
PHILADELPHIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Philadelphia police are investigating a shocking drug case in preschool.
Investigators say a four-year-old boy brought eight-bags of crack cocaine and $173 in cash to class Tuesday and was showing it off to classmates.
The kids told the teacher, who then called police.
Now parents and the community are waiting to hear who gave the cash and drugs to the little boy.
"I'm shocked that a kid was able to bring drugs to school, but it's not really surprising with the drug epidemic in the city," said one parent.
Canine dogs sniffed around for more drugs but nothing else was found.
The child was taken to a local hospital, but was fine.
Police say they are still investigating.
