A horrified mother from Brisbane has taken to social media to issue a warning to parents after discovering two mini bags of a crystal substance, believed to be meth, hidden inside a plastic egg in her six-year-old son’s backpack.

“Hi everyone, I’ve set this post to public in case you would like to share it as a warning,” the concerned mother wrote on Facebook alongside images of the frightening discovery.

“I was cleaning out my son’s room on Friday and inside his old school bag pocket he uses for play I found a [plastic egg] container. I opened it and found 2 little packets with what looked like big chunky salt crystals. At first of course i was shocked and tried to think where the ….. did that come from!?”

“After school we got the kids together and asked where it came from. [My son] has an amazing memory and recalled finding it in the gutter at a local second hand store weeks ago….innocently he assumed it fell out of the car and just popped it in his pocket.”

“We took it to the police station [where my son] was congratulated on the fact he didn’t eat it”

“Anyways this may be a good time to discuss this stuff with your youngens… i thought we had already covered this subject as they clearly know about no touching needles or pills but salt like crystals (meth) was new to us!!”
