Dozens of heroin packets were discovered in the jacket of a 2-year-old toddler at a New Jersey daycare center, leading to the arrest of the child's father.

A worker at the child-care center in Paterson, about 20 miles west of New York City, discovered 48 glassine envelopes of heroin stuffed in the child's jacket on Monday, according to Paterson Police Lieutenant Bert Ribeiro.

The employee called police, who determined the father had accompanied the child to the center that day, according to Reuters.

There was no indication the child was aware the drugs were in his jacket, police said.

The child's father, identified by police as Phillip Young, 27, was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. He was being held on $85,000 bail, authorities said.
