A 5-year-old boy brought a small bag of cocaine to his kindergarten class and told his teacher it makes him “feel like Spider-man”. The teacher immediately called the principal who called the police and even though the bag was sealed, the boy was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Cops were sent to the boys home where they found his father, Benny Garcia, asleep with 38 bags of cocaine and 70 bags of heroin. Garcia also had many warrants for narcotics and is now facing additional charges. Another boy lived with Garcia and both have been placed under child services.
