Teachers find crack in Boston preschooler's shoe

The girl said her mother had put "candy" inside her sneaker

Associated Press

BOSTON — After a 3-year-old Boston girl complained that her foot hurt, her preschool teacher took off her sneaker and found 17 small plastic bags containing crack cocaine.

Police say teachers at the Walnut Grove preschool were adjusting the girl's sneaker Monday when they found the individually wrapped bags of crack.

The teachers told police the girl said her mother had put "candy" inside her sneaker.

But the girl's mother told police she knew nothing about the drugs. Police arrested 19-year-old Demare Gary, a friend of the mother's, after he allegedly told police the crack was his.
