Five-year-old brings heroin for ‘show and tell’
A Connecticut man was arrested Monday after his five-year-old stepson brought 50 packets of heroin to a “Show and Tell” day at his school Monday.
According to The Connecticut Post, 35-year-old Santos Roman was placed under custody after arriving at Barnum School in Bridgeport to retrieve the drugs.
A police spokesperson said that the boy ended up with the drugs by taking Roman’s jacket to school. When the boy revealed the ten small plastic bags contained five folds of heroin during his presentation, the teacher immediately grabbed the bags and notified the principal.
Police were called by the principal afterward and waited from Roman, who arrived at the school panically searching for his jacket and his stepson before being arrested.
The spokesperson said the boy is currently in the custody Department of Children and Families until his other family can be located.
