INDICE DE GALERIAS
PHILADELPHIA, Penn. (CNN/KYW) - Philadelphia police are investigating a shocking drug case involving a preschooler who brought crack cocaine and cash to school to show it off to classmates.
The 4-year-old boy brought $173 and eight bags of cocaine to school, causing students to be evacuated from their classrooms.
"I'm shocked that a kid was able to bring drugs to school, but it's not really surprising with the drug epidemic in the city," said concerned parent Jennifer Gallagher. "We were concerned. We were scared to death when we heard, you know, a pre-K child."
Officers said the 4-year-old showed off the cash around 10 a.m.
"They told the teacher, and then the child reached into his pocket, pulled out a quantity of narcotics," said Chief Inspector Cynthia Dorsey.
Dogs sniffed around for more drugs, but investigators found nothing else.
Police took the 4-year-old to Saint Christopher's Hospital. School district officials said the boy is a victim, and they are glad to hear he is safe.
Now parents and the community are waiting to hear who gave the cash and drugs to the little boy.
"We can't charge a 4-year-old, but of course, if the investigation proves we can find out if there are narcotics and we can find out who's in the possession of them," said Fernando Gallard, chief of communications.
Officials say the investigation is still under way.
