PALMETTO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say five children have been removed from a Tampa area home after a 12-year-old brought illegal drugs to school.

The boy told school administrators he found the drugs in his parents’ bedroom.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (https://bit.ly/ZTCrww ) reports that Manatee County Sheriff’s officials found seven grams of meth, a “dime bag” of cocaine and one marijuana blunt to his Palmetto middle school last week.

Investigators say no drugs were found in the boy’s home.

Officials say the children were removed from the home as the investigation continues.
