SWEET SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) - Officials at a small northwest Missouri elementary school say they were stunned when a kindergarten student brought his mom's crack pipe and some drugs for show-and-tell.

KCTV reports (http://bit.ly/ocGtMy) that the boy showed the items on Sept. 6 at Sweet Springs Elementary School. School officials called police.

The boy's 32-year-old mother was arrested and is charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

Court records indicate that the teacher told police that the boy had the pipe and "several baggies of crack rocks." Officials say the drugs were worth about $3,700.

A family friend told KCTV5 that the boy is being cared for by relatives.
