A MUM has told of her horror after her eight-year-old son found a Kinder Egg capsule full of mystery pills in a playground.
Stacey Thomson tipped off the police after little Kynzli found the plastic container in Fife, Scotland – but cops refused to investigate further.
The yellow plastic egg was packed with blue pills marked with a ‘V’ and 10mg.
She tipped off cops, but the find was dismissed after the drugs were found to be over-the-counter pharmaceuticals.
She fumed: “I was with Kynzli playing in the park and he found a little tub from a Kinder Egg.
“He kicked it and it rattled so he picked it up thinking there was a toy inside.
Thankfully I was there and instantly told him to pass me it first.
“I opened it and low and behold – drugs.
I would like other parents to be more vigilant when with their children at local play areas, regardless of their age.
“Although my son would never have touched what was inside, the same cannot be said for a child of a younger age.
I’m just glad we found them and not a little one.
“God forbid what could have happened if a small child ate these thinking they were sweets – the outcome could have been a lot different.”
Police later confirmed the contents of the plastic egg was prescription medicine.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police in Fife received a report that tablets had been found inside a small plastic container at Lochore Meadows Country Park.
“These were established to be over-the-counter medication and were disposed of.
“No further police action is required.”
