BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KAKE) - Police in southern California say a middle school employee was hospitalized last week after coming into contact with pills containing fentanyl, which were allegedly brought to school by a 13-year-old student. 

Bakersfield police responded Friday morning to Chipman Junior High School for the report of a student possibly in possession of fentanyl. 

"While en route, officers were reported of a possible overdose from a yard supervisor who inadvertently came in contact with the pills when they were located with the student," the department said in a release. 
 
A police officer with a local high school arrived on the scene and administered Narcan to the staff member, who was later transported to an area hospital in stable condition.
 
The release said a 13-year-old student allegedly brought to school 150 fentanyl pills disguised as Percocet. The student was arrested. 
 
"The yard supervisor discovered the pills the student obtained, because the student was involved in an unrelated altercation, with another student. It was also found that the student was in possession of approximately $300.00 dollars."
 
Police said the school employee did not ingest any pills, but that they are in inhalation hazard.
 
It unclear if the pills were sold or delivered to other students.
