Police say they have identified the suspect.

The Coon Rapids Police Department is investigating a video sent to them that the department says shows children using drugs. 

In a statement posted to social media, Coon Rapids police said: "This morning we were made aware of a video involving children and drug use floating around the internet."

"We received many reports via social media, and we would like you to know that we are actively investigating, and with the suspect," it added.

The video hasn't been made public by police, but commenters on Coon Rapids Police Department's Facebook page say the video shows a 14 year old girl making a 7-year-old girl smoke marijuana.
