Adults Arrested After Kindergartner Brings Cocaine To School
A Louisiana man and woman were arrested after a kindergartner brought three bags of cocaine to his school.
A teacher brought the issue to the attention of a school officer after noticing that the young boy was holding a bag of white powder.
“Throughout the investigation, it was apparent the child had no knowledge about the drugs,” police said.
Officers then carried out a search on the child’s home and arrested Angelica Stanley, 23, and Ellis Cousin, 51, after they discovered more coke.
“It’s a terrible thing but the silver lining in all this is that the teacher did a phenomenal job being alert, notifying the SRO [school resource officer], taking immediate action,” Slidell police Detective Daniel Seuzeneau said to FOX 8. “God only knows what would have happened if this child would have ingested the cocaine, if another student would have ingested the cocaine, I mean it would have been terrible.”
Stanley and Cousin have been charged with possession of a schedule II narcotic with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and cruelty to a minor.
Their relationship with child has not been made clear, but, police say he will be taken care of.
