Boy finds meth in his trick-or-treat bag

The Star Tribune reported Monday that a 7-year-old boy from Ramsey County found meth and $85 in his candy bag.
The boy and his sister were going through the bag and found the drugs and money.
The boy's parents, Lars and Shelly Brosdahl, did not release the boy's name.
They turned the stash over to police, who said it is likely an isolated incident.
The boy said that a "bigger kid" ran by and asked the boy if he wanted some candy, and dropped the drugs in his bag.
Police suspect that it may have been a 24-year-old man that was arrested on Halloween night, who will likely face an assault charge.
But, police handed out fliers to make sure no other children got any drugs in their bags.
The Brosdahls said that though they had not talked to their kids about drugs before, they had to after the incident.
They also said that their son was excited about the money, and was planning on sharing it with his sister.
He will be able to claim the money if no one else does in 90 days.
