A North Carolina woman was busted on drug trafficking charges after a child showed up to school with a large quantity of cocaine last week, police said.
Over 260 grams of the drug were found inside the child’s book bag last Tuesday by a school resource officer at Trent Park Elementary School, according to the Craven County Sheriff’s Office.
The discovery led the arrest of 27-year-old Sharae Becton, authorities said.
She is charged with trafficking cocaine, possession with intent sell/deliver cocaine, and child abuse.
Police did not reveal Becton’s relationship to the child.
A photo posted to the Craven County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page shows cocaine wrapped inside a vacuum sealed plastic bag, along with a baby blue Jansport backpack.
