The boy told the officer he was afraid to return home, authorities said. After talking with the child, police said they contacted his parents and obtained a warrant to search his family’s home. ‘Detectives allegedly located fentanyl pills, commonly referred to as “mexis” and drug paraphernalia,’ Kennewick Police said in a Thursday afternoon post on the department’s Facebook page. The child’s parents were booked into the Benton County jail. Child Protective Services took the boy and his younger sister into protective custody, police said. ‘We would like to acknowledge the courage that it took for this child to bring this information to a trusted adult at the Kennewick School District,’ the department stated. ‘He and his sibling will now be in a safer place. Hopefully, this will be the impetus to his parents getting the help they need.’ Social media trolls berated Edwards and Oleary’s Facebook page on Friday.
