Ashley R. Tull, 30 of Selbyville, Delaware was busted for drugs in an especially costly way. Her 4-year-old daughter mistakenly brought packages of heroin to school and, thinking they were candy, handed them out to friends. Now, Tull faces not just charges for Maintaining a Drug Property but three counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child (based on her three children).
Authorities responded to an emergency call at the Hickory Tree Child Care Center after daycare workers saw children with small bags of an unknown substance. It proved to be heroin that the child found in her backpack. Several children came into contact with the drug and were placed under observation. A total of 249 bags of heroin, weighing 3.735 grams, was located in the backpack, according to Del. State Police.
Tull was released on $6,000 bail, but she has a no contact order for her kids (who are with a relative).
