Officials say a Valley Stream man has been arrested after disguising pain pills in a bag of Skittles.

According to federal agents, Michael Foreste, 34, was mailing the pills to a 2-month-old in Vermont.

Federal agents say Foreste intended for the baby's uncle to distribute the pills. One bag of Skittles had more than 300 oxycodone pills, according to the Daily News.
