Police and federal agents were looking for nearly 400 stolen semiautomatic weapons they believe were sold or given away on the streets of one of New York's highest crime areas by a crack-using deliveryman. Edward Villegas, 37, was to have transported the guns from an Iberia Airlines cargo warehouse at John F. Kennedy International Airport to New Jersey, police said. Instead, police allege, he went on a crack-smoking binge and sold or swapped the guns to get money for drugs.

The Red Cross, which brought Americans swimming lessons and resuscitation for heart-attack victims, is developing a game to help fight AIDS by teaching children about the consequences of unsafe sex. "The Red Cross sees this game as a natural extension of its response to a critical health emergency," said Sandra Grymes, manager of health services for the American Red Cross in Greater New York. "It's a game that is directed toward teen-agers and young adults to help them process information about AIDS and understand that they have some control over their behaviors in relationship to the disease," Grymes said.
