by Molly Novak

A kindergarten boy showed off fifty packets of heroin for show and tell on Monday.

According to the Connecticut Post,  the boy's stepfather was arrested when he came to retrieve the drugs.

The 5-year-old showed up to school wearing his stepfather's jacket. When it was time for his presentation, he opened the jacket and displayed 10 bags containing five folds of heroin, police spokesman Keith Bryant told the Connecticut Post.

The teacher immediately confiscated the drugs and contacted the principal who called police.

The boy's stepfather, Santos Roman, 35, came to the school searching for his stepson and the drugs, police told the Connecticut Post. When he found his jacket in an empty classroom he grabbed it and found the drugs gone. They had already been given to police.

Roman was taken into custody and charged with risk of injury to a minor, possession of narcotics, sale of narcotics and possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school. His bail is set at $100,000, according to the Associated Press.

The 5-year-old is in custody of the state until relatives can be contacted.
