A New Jersey man has been charged after police say his five-year-old son brought 30 packs of heroin to school.

Maurice Leonard, 28, was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child after the drugs were found in his son's lunchbox at school.

A warrant was also issued for Leonard's girlfriend 27-year-old Turia Justice, Lt Stephen Varn told NJ.com.

The kindergartner, who is a student at the International Academy of Trenton Charter School's Bellevue Avenue campus, was playing with a small white object that his teacher had mistaken for a candy wrapper, Lt Stephen Varn told NJ.com.

She told the child to put it away but soon realized that he had resumed playing with it.

The teacher then walked over to the student and discovered that it was actually a pack of heroin
