Drugs at School

April 24th, 2009 by admin


Two Warren Township fifth-graders — ages 10 and 11 — have been arrested after police say they were caught conducting a marijuana deal at school.

Details were sketchy, but Warren Township spokesman Dennis Jarrett said a student told school officials he saw a classmate at Brookview Elementary sell a “marijuana-like substance” to another student Tuesday morning.

“We are getting to a state of emergency,” said the Rev. Byron Alston, director of Save the Youth, an Eastside social services program. “When you have elementary students selling dope in the school, we’ve got a serious problem.”

According to a police report, an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department field technician later confirmed the substance was 1.88 grams of marijuana — enough for one or two joints.

The boys were arrested on juvenile charges of dealing and possessing marijuana and taken to the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center. Both were suspended, pending an investigation.

Their ages raised concern.
