Teens arrested for pill sale on school bus

Two Superior High School freshmen were arrested and released to their parents for allegedly selling and being in possession of prescription drugs last week.

Two Superior High School freshmen were arrested and released to their parents for allegedly selling and being in possession of prescription drugs last week.

The alleged sale of Adderall pills, used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, took place while the students were on the bus together, according to a Superior Police report by Officer Tom Johnson.

A 15-year old boy told Johnson he first bought an Adderall pill from a 14-year-old boy on the bus home from school the Friday before spring break. He told Johnson he received about five more pills on the school bus March 31 for $5 in change and two more pills April 1 on the ride to school.

The 14-year-old told Johnson he needed some money and offered to sell the pills to his classmate for $1 apiece. He said he had the extra pills because he only takes Adderall on school days. He didn't charge the older boy for the last two pills, but exchanged them, instead, for some cereal to eat on the bus, according to the report.

The two youth were referred to juvenile intake for possible charging. Juvenile cases are not public information. Johnson did note in the report that the 15-year-old had already been put on a pre-expulsion contract by the district prior to this incident.
