The Slidell Police Department says two adults are under arrest after a school resource officer Tuesday discovered a 5-year-old kindergarten student had crack and powder cocaine.

"The school resource officer was made aware of the situation after an alert teacher saw the kindergarten student holding a bag of white powder," said Slidell Police Department spokesman Daniel Seuzeneau.

"The bag of powder was discovered to be cocaine," Seuzeneau continued. "The child was also found to be in possession of two additional bags of crack cocaine. Throughout the investigation, it was apparent the child had no knowledge about the drugs."

Detectives obtained a search warrant for the child's home, and arrested 23-year-old Angelica Stanley, and 51-year-old Ellis Cousin. Police say more drugs were found inside the home, and determined that the couple was hiding drugs in the child's clothes, without the child's knowledge.

Stanley and Cousin were booked for possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intend to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and cruelty to a juvenile.
