An elementary school student who brought cocaine to school and shared it with other students told police he found the drugs in the backseat of his stepfather’s car.

That’s what an attorney told a family court judge Monday during a hearing in the case. A second hearing Tuesday will determine whether the boy and his younger sister can go back to the home of his mother and stepfather. The two have been in foster care since the incident last week.

Four elementary students at Thomson Elementary School were taken to the hospital Thursday after they either sniffed or swallowed the drug. Officials said at the time they were fine, but had sore throats.
