Police say a child in Pennsylvania handed out more than 60 small bags of heroin to his classmates before his teacher discovered them.

Wilkinsburg police say the eight-year-old brought the bags to Turner Elementary School.

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

Offcicers said 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.
