Cocaine in Preschooler's Backpack

A preschool in Indianapolis got this week off to a dangerous start on Monday. Police say a four- year-old brought crack cocaine to a head start program and showed it to some of his classmates.

They say it was a potentially deadly situation because the child told the others that it was flour.

Police say the cocaine was worth between $7,500 and $10,000 and was in the boy's backpack.

One officer on the scene said it is only the second time he'd seen that much cocaine on one person.

The police searched the boy's home and while they were there arrested two women who were trying to get past them.

Officials say that one of the women is related to the father of the boy. Police are still looking for the boy's parents, who each have a criminal record. The boy and his sister are now in protective custody.
