Delaware Mother Faces Criminal Charges After 4-Year-Old Takes 249 Bags of Heroin to Day Care

(The Washington Post) – A Delaware woman was arrested after her 4-year-old daughter took 249 bags of heroin to day care, thinking they contained candy, and started passing them out to her playmates.

On Monday, the girl found the heroin packets in a backpack that her mother gave her to use that day after the one she normally used was ruined by a family pet, Delaware State Police said in a news release. Not long after she got to the day-care center, she started sharing the packets with the other children.

Workers at Hickory Tree Child Care Center in Selbyville, Del., saw some of the kids holding small bags of an unknown substance and immediately called 911. Police said it was tested and determined to be heroin, Fox News reported.

“None of the packets were opened by any of the kids,” Delaware State Police spokesman Gary E. Fournier told USA Today Monday night. However, several kids were sent to local hospitals as a precaution and then released after being examined.
