Cops: Kindergartner Hospitalized After 30 Packets Of Heroin Found In Lunchbox
A NJ kindergartner was hospitalized this week after 30 packets of heroin were found in his lunchbox, police said.
The heroin was found when the 5-year-old boy was seen playing with a small white object on Monday that his teacher thought was a candy wrapper, according to NJ.com.
The boy continued playing with it, but the teacher from the International Academy of Trenton Charter School’s Bellevue Avenue campus remained curious, checked it out and discovered it was a packet of heroin, according to the report.
The teacher then checked the boy’s bag and lunchbox and found 29 more packets of heroin. The boy tested negative for opioids after he was taken to Capital Health Medical Center.
