PHILADELPHIA – Authorities say a man and a woman are facing charges after a first-grader brought 11 packets of heroin to a Philadelphia school.
School officials say 20 students 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 said 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 were charged with endangerment and narcotics possession.
Listed numbers for White and Hunter couldn't be found Wednesday and it was unclear whether they had attorneys.
