When a teacher asked a 6-year-old boy to pull a folder out of his Scooby-Doo backpack, a bag filled with 25 smaller bags of marijuana fell out instead, a court document said.

The teacher gave the drugs to a school administrator, who called police. Before officers arrived at HOPE Community Academy, the boy's father showed up. He took the backpack from his son and quickly walked away, according to a criminal complaint.

The father was later arrested and told investigators he hid the marijuana in the backpack and left it in a bedroom closet. When he discovered the backpack was missing, he ran to his son's nearby school.

Corey Randle, 29, was charged Thursday with a fifth-degree drug-sale charge.
