OTTAWA - Police have charged a man after a four-year-old boy brought cocaine to school this week.
Provincial police were called to an elementary school in Renfrew, about 100 km west of Ottawa, on Thursday after the student was found with what appeared to be a lighter.
It was instead a "concealment device" for drugs and contained a quantity of cocaine, police said.
A 21 year-old man -- a relative of the child -- admitted the drugs belonged to him. He now stands charged with possession and will appear in court Nov. 13.
Police said they would not reveal the identify of the accused nor name the school, to protect the identity of the child.
