Police said some of the bags were found empty in a rubbish bin, but there was no evidence the children had ingested the drugs.

Police say the bags were stamped with the words "trust me".

School officials sent a letter home to parents about the incident.

Police are investigating how the boy got the drugs.

Wilkinsburg is about five miles east of Pittsburgh.
