Child Exposed to Fentanyl

The Caln Township Police Department responded after they received a report of an unresponsive 4-year-old child. When the officers arrived, 36-year-old Jason Moore, father of the child, was performing CPR which continued until the emergency crews arrived and took over.

In a published article in FOX News,  the investigation revealed that the child was exposed to fentanyl. Investigators searched the house and collected all items that the victim made contact with. These include water bottles with unknown liquids, a blanket, and a half-eaten lollipop, which the investigators recovered from a trash can.

The DA’s office said that the lollipop found in the defendant’s bedroom tested positive for massive amounts of fentanyl. This confirmed the report of the coroner’s office that the presence of fentanyl in the victim’s body was found.

According to a published article in New York Post, investigators alleged that Jason Moore delayed calling 911 so that he would have time to clean up the drug paraphernalia. It was also found that Jason Moore has been using fentanyl and they found drug paraphernalia on the driver’s seat.

Furthermore, both of them were arrested and are now under the custody of the Chester County Prison. Each of them is set at $250,000 bail.
