PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Pre-K drug discovery has parents and children at a Philadelphia school concerned and police searching for answers.
Investigators say a four-year-old brought eight bags of crack cocaine and $173 to a Philadelphia grade school Tuesday morning and was showing it off to classmates.
The incident happened at the Thomas Mifflin Elementary School in the 3600 block of Conrad Street in the city’s East Falls section.
“I’m shocked that a kid was able to bring drugs to school, but it isn’t really surprising with the drug epidemic in the city,” said mom Jennifer Gallagher.
