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 Charter School’s Belleveue Avenue campus on Monday.
Police tell The Trentonian that a teacher thought the 5-year-old was playing with a candy wrapper when she looked in his lunchbox and 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. International Academy of Trenton Charter School released a statement on the incident on their Facebook page.
“IAT is following the procedures specified by the law and is working closely with local authorities to handle this matter,” a spokesperson wrote. “IAT is fully committed to providing a safe, healthy environment in which all our students can be engaged, high-achieving learners and positive role models.”
