Beloit police are investigating the source of cocaine that led to the overdose of a four-year-old child Saturday night. Captain Bill Tyler says the cocaine is a "component" of the child's condition, but not the entire problem.

Tyler says the child had been taken to the emergency department of a local hospital for a medical condition that required immediate medical attention. Tyler says once the hospital staff realized the child had ingested cocaine, they contacted law enforcement. No arrests have been made, although child protective services removed a younger child from the home.
