UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) -
Police say a Pennsylvania father went to his son’s elementary school to retrieve nearly four ounces of marijuana from the kindergartner’s Elmo backpack.

State police say Ronald Washington called Menallen Elementary School in Uniontown, Pennsylvania on Thursday morning to ask if his son had arrived at school.

Police say Washington told school officials he needed to fetch something from the boy’s backpack, prompting school officials to search it.

Police say school officials called to say they had found pot in the bag.

Troopers were waiting to arrest Washington when he arrived shortly before 9 a.m.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for the 33-year-old Washington.

He was unable to post $100,000 and jailed.
