A small bag of methamphetamine in rock form was found in a parking lot at the John M. Marshall Elementary School in East Hampton Village on Wednesday.

Village police were notifed and identified it as the illegal controlled substance known as crystal meth. Police confiscated the bag and are conducting an investigation.

"At no point did our students come into contact with the illegal substance and we will continue to work with police and monitor the situation," Mr. Burns said.
