A six-year-old’s show-and-tell presentation has led to a father’s arrest on felony drug charges after 80 grams of marijuana and a scale were pulled from a backpack.
Larry Cornelius Stephens, 25, of St Petersburg Florida, is accused of placing the drugs in his kindergartener’s bag before dropping the child off at Campbell Park Elementary School on Tuesday morning.
Once discovering the bag’s contents, the child, who was described as beaming by the teacher, presented it saying, ‘Look what I got!’ according to the Tampa Bay Times.
That teacher immediately called police.
Realizing his mistake, Stephens returned to the school minutes later telling someone he needed the marijuana back to ‘take care of his business and take care of his family,’ according to police
