According to the cops ,it was reported that a suburban Chicago man, Jarod Feilen,25, has been arrested after handing out gummy bears to kids on Halloween that may have been contaminated with cannabis after claiming that he “ran out of candy.” Jarod had distributed an unknown number of bags filled with gummy bears with the wreck of marijuana in South Chicago Heights.

An alert parent and grandparent discovered the suspicious candy and turned the packages over to police. The yellow gummy bears were packaged in wrappers with no branding or print, in clear shrink film over silver foil with a black back panel.

“I was walking down the street and someone commented that someone was handing out black packets of marijuana gummies,” a dad under anonymity.“I checked my 4-year-old daughter’s bag and yes, I found three packets of gummies that smelled like marijuana.” another said.

“He said that he ran out of candy” Chief William Joyce stated “So he had some, some little baggies and he put some of his gummies in there and started distributing them.”

Feilen has been charged with five counts of child endangerment.Recovered samples has also been sent to a crime lab for testing to determine whether there was any contamination.

Parents are to contact the lab with any information about the suspicious candy packages.Police advised parents to seek medical advice if any child had consumed the gummy bears.
