Dad arrested after 6-year-old son brings meth to school, police say

The father of a 6-year-old boy was arrested after the child allegedly brought a bag of meth to his south Sacramento elementary school, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies responded to Ethel Baker Elementary last week after a call reported a "white baggy" was found in a classroom. The contents tested positive for methamphetamine, authorities said.

The bag was found by a student after it had fallen out of another student's pocket in the same class. The school was able to figure out which child brought the bag. He allegedly brought it from home, investigators said.

The boy's father, 24-year-old Gonzalo Meza, was arrested Friday on suspicion of child endangerment and possession of methamphetamine when he came to school to pick up his son.

The child is now in custody of child protective services.
