It is not everyday that one hears cocaine and fourth grader in the same sentence. If a pre-mature rebellion was the first outcome that crossed your mind, think again.
According to Yahoo News, Douglas Bartelt, a Miami-Dade Police Narcotics Bureau detective provided his daughter with 28 grams of cocaine, and three detector canines.
The cause for this detective’s contribution to his daughter Emma’s science project, was to gain her admission chances into a Preparatory Academy’s annual science fair. Among being provided with, oh, just $1,300 of cocaine and three drug sniffing dogs. The object of her experiment was to determine which canine would find the cocaine fastest using it’s sense of smell. It is reported that Emma never touched the cocaine but her father, detective Bartelt handled it for her.
Sure enough, the use of such components resulted in the fourth grader winning first place and an automatic entry into the science fair. She can surely thank that powdery white substance and the canines who identify it.
