Boy, 14, arrested after attempted drug deal at school

Sandusky Register Staff • Jan 13, 2014 at 1:20 PM

The boy, 14, of Wakeman, passed a note to another boy during class, which read “Hey if you have adderall I can sell 20 milligrams for $4 apiece” with a response “I have 30 mgs” according to an Erie County Sheriff’s report.

The teacher pulled the boy aside at about 11:15 a.m. and contacted the school’s resource officer, an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy.

When the deputy questioned the boy, he initially said he’d flushed the pills in a toilet, but later admitted he was hiding them in his front pants pocket, according to the report.

He was carrying 17 pills: five tramadol, 10 amphetamine and two hydrocodone.

When contacted about the incident, the boy’s mother said he had a prescription for tramadol and amphetamine, but not for hydrocone.

Deputies charged the boy with delinquent juvenile and possession of a controlled substance.

They transported him to the Erie County Juvenile Justice Center.
