Dozens of packets of heroin were found in a toddler's jacket by a worker at a New Jersey daycare center, police said.
Paterson police say the 2-year-old showed up at the daycare center on Oliver Street Monday with 48 glassine envelopes.
The child's father was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child.

Parents at the daycare said Tuesday that they hadn't been told about what was found.
"My daughter sees something on the floor, puts it in her mouth thinking it's candy -- same thing could have happened here," said Dulce Ibanez, a parent.
Authorities don't believe any other children came into contact with the drugs.
The daycare, Michael's Energy Factory, had no comment.
