First Coast News: The Clay County Sheriff's Office says there isn't enough evidence to continue investigating a bag of cocaine that was found in a Skittles box at a local CVS.

The CVS manager says that although security cameras were in use at the time of the incident, due to the angle of the camera, they were unable to see who dropped off the 1.2 gram bag of cocaine.

A CVS spokesperson, Mike DeAngelis, says "there's no evidence of somebody placing a foreign object near the candy."

Police say Bonnie Cowart and her 14-year-old son went into the CVS on CR 218 and SR 21 around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. Her son, Corby Cowart, says he found a bag of cocaine next to the bag of Skittles inside the candy box.

He told First Coast News' Erich Spivey he was surprised by the discovery and knew what it was by watching the show Cops on television.

The family reported this to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, who tested the bag and it came back positive for cocaine.

The family says the went back to CVS to talk to the manager.

They say the manager told them there was no need to take the remainding Skittles off the shelves, and laughed it off.

DeAngelis says the manager did not laugh off the problem. DeAngelis says the family told the manager "what are we going to do for them."

"At the time the candies were paid for, it was never brought to our attention that they found something," DeAngelis says.
