BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut school superintendent says a 5-year-old boy found bags of heroin inside a jacket he had taken to school and showed them to his kindergarten classmates.
Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas says he believes the boy took his stepfather's jacket to school without knowing the drugs were inside it.
Police have said the boy took 50 packets of heroin to school on Monday for show and tell. But Vallas said Tuesday the boy waved the drugs around after finding them in the jacket and didn't formally present them to his class.
The boy's stepfather, Santos Roman, has been arrested on risk of injury to a minor and drug charges. There's no phone number listed for his address.
Vallas says the boy has been placed in the custody of his grandmother.
