The Dog Ate Her What?

Ashley Tull’s dog ruined her daughter’s backpack. Tull, 30, gave her daughter another backpack and dropped her off at daycare in Selbyville, Del. When the 4-year-old girl opened the backpack, she discovered 249 little bags of what she thought were temporary tattoos and candy left over from a recent party at her house. So, she started handing the packets out to her classmates. An employee noticed the packets and reported them to the daycare’s owner, Alisa Johnson. “I put it in a Food Lion bag and took it to the Selbyville police,” Johnson said. “I said to them, ‘can you tell me what this is?’” Police quickly identified the contents as heroin. Tull was taken into custody, charged with maintaining a drug property, plus three counts of child endangering. Thankfully, none of the children ingested any of the drugs. (MS/Wilmington News Journal) ...Taking candy from a baby isn’t always a bad thing.
