A three-year-old New York City girl arrived at school Friday toting marijuana in her backpack, CBS New York reports.

An employee at the New LIFE School in Harlem noticed that she reeked of pot and called police, who arrived at the scene and found 14 bags of the drug stuffed inside the girl’s pink Minnie Mouse backpack.

Later that night, police arrested 24-year-old Kelly Mena, who admitted the bags of weed belonged to him. He was charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana. A friend of the girl’s father, Mena was allegedly responsible for placing the marijuana inside the backpack, though it’s not yet clear why.
