Authorities have taken into custody the mother of a 4-year-old girl who passed out packets of heroin to her daycare, thinking it was candy. This little girl’s honest mistake may be a the life saving event she needed to escape from a drug infested home.
Authorities say a 4-year-old girl in Delaware passed out packets of heroin she found in her mother’s backpack to her day care mates, thinking they contained candy.
The Delaware State Police said in a news release that the girl found the bags Monday in a backpack her mom gave her to use after hers was ruined by a family pet. The pack contained 249 bags of heroin weighing 3.7 grams.
