California middle schooler arrested for bringing fentanyl to school, causing employee to overdose – WGMD
A 13 year old boy Californian college boy was arrested after bringing fentanyl to school, which caused a school supervisor to overdose.
The Bakersfield Police Department responded to Chipman High school Friday after the school reported that a student was in possession of approximately 150 fentanyl pills disguised as Percocet, according to KGET.
The pills were discovered after a search was conducted on the student during an unrelated altercation with another student, which led to a school supervisor discovering the pills and inadvertently overdosing, according to GDP. According to police, the supervisor did not ingest the pills, but opened the pill bottle to check it and was exposed as they posed an “inhalation hazard”.
A Kern High School police officer administered Narcan to the supervisor, who was later transferred to a local hospital for treatment and was listed in stable condition.
According to the police, the student in possession of the fentanyl pills disguised as Percocet also had around $300 on him, although they could not immediately tell if any of the pills had been sold or given to another student. The investigation was still ongoing.
The 13-year-old student was charged with possession of a controlled substance for sale and was taken to a juvenile hall after the arrest.
The Bakersfield Police Department did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.
