*When Ashley Tull sent her 4-year-old daughter to Hickory Tree Child Care Centre on this particular day, she obviously didn’t check her little backpack. And the girl ended up treating her classmates to what she thought was “sweets” – but what was, in actuality, 250 packs of heroin.
Tull, 30, has now been charged with drug possession and endangering the welfare of a child, according to a statement by Delaware State Police.
The authorities confirm ‘The white powdery substance, which was still enclosed in the bags, was removed by the teachers and immediately taken to the Selbyville Police Department where it was determined to be heroin.’
‘Several children who came in contact with the unopened bags were transported to area hospitals as a precautionary measure and were released after being examined.’
‘A total of 249 bags of heroin weighing 3.735 grams was located in the backpack.’
Ashley Tull was released after posting a $6,000 secured bond.
