Student finds meth on western Colorado school grounds

CLIFTON (AP) -

Sheriff's deputies say a western Colorado student found a veil of methamphetamine on the grounds of an elementary school.
  
KKCO-TV reported Friday a 7-year-old boy wound up taking the drug to his home in Cliffton without knowing what it was. His mother took it back to Clifton Elementary School, where a Mesa County sheriff's officer assigned to the school tested it and discovered it was methamphetamine.
  
Sheriff's spokeswoman Megan Terlecky says deputies are investigating how the drug wound up in the schoolyard. She says officials don't believe students were involved.
  
Brianna Palmer, whose son brought the vial home, says he told her another student gave it to him. She says the two boys often swap toys and game cards.
  
It wasn't clear when the incident occurred.
