PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a man and a woman are facing charges after a first-grader took 11 packets of heroin to a Philadelphia school.
School officials say 20 students, the entire first grade class, at Barry Elementary School in the city’s Cobbs Creek section were taken to a hospital after a teacher saw a 6-year-old girl playing with one of the packets.
No injuries were reported, although police say one of the packets appeared to have been bitten and a girl was complaining of stomach pains.
Police and prosecutors said Wednesday that 28-year-old Christopher Troy-Jenkins White and 32-year-old Marie Hunter are charged with endangerment and narcotics possession.
Listed phone numbers for White and Hunter can’t be found. It’s unclear whether they have attorneys.
