Two Crescenta Valley High School students were arrested on Sept. 17 on campus on suspicion of possession of a narcotic.
CVHS Principal Linda Evans said that two students were found in possession of what appeared to be LSD.
One student was arrested on suspicion of possession of narcotics for sale, and one student was arrested on suspicion of possession of a narcotic. They were released to the custody of their parents, said Sgt. Mike Telles.
Two other students were allegedly found to be under the influence of the hallucinogen.
“One student was taken to the hospital [for observation], the other one was released to her parent,” Evans said.
According to officials, LSD is not a drug that has been found often in Crescenta Valley.
Like an arrest that took place last week at Rosemont Middle School when a child was found with several pills of Ecstasy, school officials and the school resource officer were lead to the teen suspects through a tip from a concerned person.
During a Crescenta Valley Town Council meeting on Sept. 17, Deputy Steve Toley said that although there were arrests made at the schools, it was a good sign that people and, in some cases students, were willing to come forward when they hear of drugs on their campus.
