Five-year-old boy brings crack cocaine to Pennsylvania preschool


A 5-year-old boy brings nearly two dozen ziplock bags of crack cocaine to his preschool.

Police say a teacher’s aide at the Saint Cyprian Children Center Preschool in Philadelphia noticed that the child was acting strangely and suspected that a bag he had brought in, was full of illegal drugs.

The teacher’s aide immediately told an administrator who called the police.

When police arrived they found the boy with a clear plastic bag containing 22 purple zip lock bags of crack cocaine.

People living in the area say they are shocked.

Investigators and school officials do not believe any other students came in contact with the drugs.

Police are now trying to figure out where the drugs came from and how the boy was able to get his hands on them.
