Inspired By 21 Jump Street, Middle Schooler Brings Fentanyl to School
As the flood of heroin and fentanyl continues to wash across Ohio, it’s not completely surprising that deadly drugs have even begun showing up in Middle School.
As reported by the Daily Caller, police were called to Indian Lake Middle School in Ohio on Thursday after the teacher found the bag of white powder and brought it to the school principle. Drug-sniffing dogs did a sweep of he hallway where the powder was discovered, which later tested positive for fentanyl, a synthetic opioid roughly 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, reports 10TV.
Officials said they were shocked by the test results, calling the situation, “just mind-boggling and very scary.” An investigation linked the bag of drugs to an unidentified 12-year-old girl at the school, who appeared before a juvenile court Friday.
The girl told a judge she brought the drugs to school after watching a scene from the movie 21 Jump Street, though officers said they are, “not quite sure what her motive was or what she was trying to duplicate.”
“She knew what she had. I don’t believe she knew how dangerous it was,” Washington Township Police Chief Rick Core told 10TV. “I hate to think of what could have possibly happened had that baggie been broke open or multiple exposures for kids in that building.”
