After a 4-year-old girl brought 250 packets of heroin to her day care center on Monday morning and passed them out to other kids — apparently thinking it was candy — a Delaware mom was tracked down by police and arrested.

Reuters reported Delaware State Police as saying in a statement that Ashley Tull, 30, of Selbyville, was charged with drug possession and endangering the welfare of a child after her daughter brought the drugs to the Hickory Tree Child Care Center.

Police said several of the children who received the small, unopened bags were taken to area hospitals as a precaution and later released.

The child unknowingly brought the heroin to the care center in a replacement backpack, after hers was ruined by a family pet the night before, according to police.

Tull was released from jail after posting $6,000 bond, police said. She has been barred from coming into contact with her 4-year-old, or her two other children, aged 9 and 11.

The investigation into the incident was ongoing, police said.
