A 4 year old passes out heroine packets

It’s an unthinkable story. A Four-year-old in Selbyville, Del passes out heroin packets at day care. The child thought they were candy. She brought hundreds of packets of heroine in a bag to her daycare and commenced passing them around to her friends and classmates.

None of the children were hurt, and while a few were taken to hospital as a precaution, none of the packets were opened and the children are all fine.

How did this happen?

Police say the child’s mother gave her a different backpack because the girl’s regular backpack had been ruined by the family pet. The childs mother accidentally gave her a backpack that contained nearly 250 packets of heroin, totalling nearly 4 grams (0.14 ounces), all labeled “Slam.”

Ashley Tull, 30, of Selbyville, the girls mother, was charged with three counts of child endangerment and maintaining a drug property. Bail has been set for a $6,000 bond.

The mother’s sister, Alicia Tull, says that the girls motherdid not intentionally send her child to school with heroine and claims that the mother does not deal heroine or use heroine, and that an individual stored the drugs in the home without the mother’s knowledge.

The daycare centre contacted police as soon as they realized what had happened, handling the situation very well.
