Arizona Parents Find Drugs in Toy Bought at Thrift Store

North Phoenix parents got a surprise on Friday when they opened up a toy they bought for their daughter at a thrift shop and found drugs, according to Phoenix police.

The parents were cleaning the glow worm stuffed light-up toy when they opened the back and found a sandwich bag filled with more than 5,000 pills believed to be fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, according to Phoenix police spokesperson Sgt. Mercedes Fortune.

The family got the toy at a thrift shop in El Mirage, according to police.

The family called police to report the incident, and gave the drugs to officers, according to police.

Police used the opportunity to remind people to inspect all open and used items.
