Police are investigating after Hanover School reported Tuesday afternoon that a 4-year-old pre-kindergarten special needs student pulled out nine baggies of marijuana during snack time.
Detective Lt. Mark Walerysiak, the police spokesman, said police were called to the school at about 1:15 p.m. The officer spoke with the child's teacher, who turned over the bags containing the drugs. She said the boy pulled the bags from his coat pocket during snack time, announcing that he had snacks.
"The case remains under investigation," Walerysiak said. The Department of Children and Families "was called in to also conduct an investigation."
