Quentin Roosevelt Elementary School
Police were called to Quentin Roosevelt Elementary School in Pittsburgh, PA after a 7-year-old boy was caught with 18 bags of heroin and was handing them out to classmates.
The boy cut his finger on a razor blade which prompted the principal to look inside his schoolbag and spot the drugs. The police were then notified and brought in a drug-sniffing dog and found even more drugs in the boy’s locker.
The boy told police that he found the bags at home and did not know what they were.School officials quickly informed parents of other students and three came forward with bags of heroin they’d found in their children’s possession. Police spokeswoman, Diane Richard, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “The kids are calling it ‘the magic ticket’ because it is a white pack with a stamp of a bunny coming out of a hat.”
Shannon Macafee, whose six-year-old daughter attends the school, told KDKA TV:
“I think it’s disgusting, I think it’s shameful on the parent. However this child got it, someone has to be held accountable. I want to know how someone could let their child get their hands on something like this. I explained to my daughter that you don’t take anything off anyone, a little kid, stranger, because it could be anything these days.”
Any amount of heroin could be lethal to a child of that age but officials say it does not appear that any of the children had taken the drug.
