    First-grader hands out crack cocaine, thinking it was candy

    Police this afternoon continued to search for the mother and other relatives of a first-grader who found 40 small bags of crack cocaine in his school book bag and allegedly handed the drug out to his classmates, thinking it was candy.

    "He was a darling little child; he had no idea of what he had," said Chicago Heights District 170 Supt. Dollie Helsel.

    Police have been searching for the boy's guardians since the incident occurred Friday at Lincoln School in the southern suburb. The child is now in the care of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, authorities said.

    No arrests have been made yet, and officials said the child would not be charged because he sincerely believed he was passing out candy, not a dangerous drug.
