Police arrested a father after nearly 50 packets of heroin were found Monday in his 2-year-old son’s jacket at a northern New Jersey child care center.

An employee at Michael’s Energy Factory in Paterson found 48 bags of the powerful drug in the child’s jacket and police were called. There’s no indication that the child knew the drugs were in the jacket or that any of other children at the center were exposed to the drugs, Paterson Press reported.

Lt. Bert Ribeiro said police determined the child had been brought to the day care that morning by his father, Phillips Young, 27, who is charged with child endangerment.
