Lincoln police are investigating an 11-year-old girl who brought a baggie of methamphetamine to school Wednesday.

A test identified the white substance to be meth, Capt. Robert Farber said. The bag was sent to a lab for further testing.

Police were called to Belmont Elementary School shortly after 1:30 p.m. when Principal Kim Rosenthal reported that a student showed up to school with the drugs.

The student said she found it Tuesday evening on a curb by her house. She claimed she inadvertently brought it to school, Farber said.

A note from school officials to Belmont parents said the student was showing it to classmates who notified a teacher.

Police continue to investigate how she came to have the drugs. The student was referred for possession of narcotics to the Lancaster County Attorney Office's juvenile division.
