Jeff Paquette found nine packets of heroin Tuesday, just feet away from a head start classroom outside the Kennebec Valley Community Action Program building on King Street.
Paquette, Maintenance Director for K.V.-CAP, says he noticed the small package when he was unloading tables from his truck.
He took the packets that read, ":Blue Magic": on them into the building to ask if anyone knew what they were.
After looking up ":Blue Magic": on the internet they quickly found out what they were dealing with and called police.
Deputy Chief Rumsey says a child could have been injured or killed if the drug was ingested.
Police say the street value of that heroin is close to three hundred dollars.
