Who knew what could be hidden in a tiny tot’s shoe?
A 3-year-old Boston girl complained to her preschool teacher that her foot was hurting. When her teacher removed and adjusted her sneaker, she found 17 small plastic bags containing crack cocaine.
The teacher reported to police that the young girl said her mother had put “candy” inside of her shoe.
Her mother said that she was unaware of the drugs. Police ended up arresting one of the mother’s friends, Demare Gary, after he told police that the crack belonged to him. He was arrested on charges of possessing crack cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of the substance in a school zone. The mother was not arrested and the investigation is currently ongoing.
