Phoenix police said Saturday the child's parents bought a Glo Worm from a thrift store in El Mirage, Arizona. The parents were cleaning the toy when they found a sandwich bag filled with the drugs, according to police.

Grocery store workers have been on the front lines for a year, but they're struggling to get the Covid vaccine

  Grocery store workers have been on the front lines for a year, but they're struggling to get the Covid vaccine A Covid-19 vaccine that once offered grocery store workers hope for their safety remains elusive for most. Although coronavirus risks are high and new variants of the virus are spreading, most of the more than 2.4 million low-wage grocery workers in this country have not yet been made eligible for the vaccine. Guidance on vaccine eligibility continues to evolve, leaving these frontline workers unsure of when they'll be able to receive the vaccine.

Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids increased over 16 percent from 2018 to 2019, according to the CDC.

Law enforcement officials used the incident as a reminder for parents to inspect all open and used toys.

It wasn’t the first time illicit drugs were found stuffed inside children’s toys.

In 2015, a New Jersey mom bought a $500 “handmade” mermaid doll filled with cocaine from Etsy. Investigators later determined that the Etsy shop based in Alabama used mer-baby dolls as a front for smuggling drugs.
