WILKINSBURG, Pa. — An 8-year-old Pennsylvania boy took more than 60 small bags of heroin to school and was passing some of them out to other third-graders before a teacher caught him, police said.
Police and school officials in Wilkinsburg, near Pittsburgh, said Wednesday a teacher at the boy’s elementary school saw him fumbling in his pockets during class Tuesday and asked him about it, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The boy then pulled out the drugs, and five other students reported being given the bags. Police seized 60 bags and found 18 more in a trash can. Police said bags were marked “trust me.”
