Louisiana police arrested a man and a woman on Tuesday after a 5 Year-old brought bags of cocaine to school.
A New Orleans teacher immediately called the schools resource officer when she noticed the child holding a bag of powder.
Officers later discovered that the bag of white powder was actually cocaine.
During an investigation officers found two additional bags of the drug in the child’s possession, it was apparent the child had no knowledge about the drugs,” police said.
Narcotics detectives conducted a search warrant at the child’s residence and came into contact with 23-year-old Angelica Stanley and 51-year-old Ellis Cousin. Police say detectives discovered additional narcotics inside of the home and also were able to determine, unbeknownst to the child, that the cocaine was being stored in the child’s clothing.
Both Stanley and Cousin were arrested and charged with possession of a schedule II narcotic (cocaine) with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and cruelty to a juvenile.
