Meriden Police said Thursday that they are applying for a warrant to arrest the mother of a pre-kindergartener who allegedly brought marijuana to his elementary school Tuesday.
Police have been investigating the incident since being called to the school Tuesday afternoon, when Hanover School administration notified them that took nine bags of marijuana out of his pocket during snack time on Tuesday at Hanover School.
Officers have interviewed the child's mother, according to Sgt. Darrin McKay, a Meriden Police Spokesman, and though she said she does not know how the child obtained the marijuana, she will still be charged.
Police hope to serve the warrant early next week, according to Sgt. Darrin McKay, a Meriden Police Spokesman, and will not release the mother's name until the warrant is approved.
McKay said that police plan to charge her with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession with Intent to Sell, and Risk of Injury to a Minor, according to McKay. The latter two charges are felony charges.
