    Boy, 5, Brings Bag of Marijuana To Elementary School
    Child Spotted Sprinkling Drug Over Friend's Lasagna

    MIAMI -- Police say a 5-year-old boy brought a bag of marijuana to school and was sprinkling it over a friend's lasagna at the school cafeteria before a monitor intervened.

    Police say it is unclear whether the kindergartner at Gratigny Elementary School even knew he was carrying the drugs on Monday.

    The lasagna was confiscated before the other boy had a chance to eat it.

    Initially, the boy, who had tried to hide the bag with his feet when the monitor approached him, "may have said it was oregano," said Mayco Villafana, spokesman for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

    "The boy is not going to be charged," Villafana said. "The focus is on the child's environment and what issues could have led to a child having a bag of marijuana in school."

    The family of the kindergartner who had the marijuana is under the scrutiny of school police and state child-welfare authorities.

    School police took the matter to the state attorney's office and in addition to speaking with the boy's family, police are looking into whether an older friend asked the boy to hold the plastic bag. The case was also referred to Florida's Department of Children and Families, Villafana said.

    After speaking with police, the boys were allowed to return to their kindergarten class. Both sets of parents were contacted about the police inquiry. No names were released.

    One has to wonder what powers the Police, or anyone else have to confiscate lasagne. Even if it is school lasagne.

    Now the "spam fritters" and "roast potatoes" which we got served, that&#39;s another story.

    I think it was viewed as a drug delivery device or drug paraphernalia like pipes and bongs.

    a pre-schooler who brought &#036;7,500 crack cocaine to school

    parents still sought in drug case
    Police find toddler who also disappeared on Monday after the couple&#39;s 4-year-old son brought crack cocaine to a Head Start program.

    The parents of a pre-schooler who brought crack cocaine to school were believed to still be in hiding this morning, but police said they have found a toddler who disappeared with them on Monday.

    The toddler was found at an apartment complex in the 4400 block of North Shadeland Ave. about 11 a.m., police said.

    Police believe that the couple, Kenneth Lee Green, 24, and Andrea D. Jackson, 23, might be armed, said Sgt. Roger Tuchek, of the Indianapolis Police Department.

    A search of the couple&#39;s home in the 400 block of West 41st Street on Monday turned up handgun and rifle rounds, shotgun shells and a bulletproof vest in addition to scales and some suspected marijuana.

    The search for the couple began after their 4-year-old son brought a bag of suspected crack cocaine "rocks," worth as much as &#036;7,500 on the street, to the Head Start program at 3637 N. Meridian Street.

    A teacher recognized the white clumps as possible cocaine and called police.

    "Obviously, these parents aren&#39;t going to get any Parent of the Year awards," said Tuchek.

    "This could have killed these kids," he said. "A lot of kids were put at risk."

    According to court records, Jackson was wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a 2001 theft charge. Green had been convicted of carrying a firearm without a license in 1999, and of resisting law enforcement and marijuana possession in 1997.

    Police said Child Protective Services took the 4-year-old and two older siblings, 6 and 7, into custody. The toddler was described by reports and police alternately as 11 months old and 20 months old.

    Tuchek said child welfare workers are investigating claims of child abuse against the parents.

    A 3-year-old California girl died after she ate some cocaine she found around the house in 2002, and last month, her father pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. The Associated Press reported the man&#39;s girlfriend found the child in his room, suffering a seizure. The girl died 11 days later from seizures and cardiac arrest.

    After police arrived at about 8:30 a.m. on Monday, they seized the drugs and interviewed the boy. Then they got a search warrant for his parents&#39; home, in the 400 block of West 41st Street.

    The police presence startled parents picking up their children from Head Start, a federally funded early-childhood education program.

    "This is a real good school, so something like this is very unusual," said David Lewis, 36. "I&#39;m thinking the child just picked up the wrong backpack and the parents didn&#39;t notice."
