Troy Student Arrested for Handing Out Oxycontin

Joliet police say the 14-year-old girl told classmates that the drug was aspirin.

A 14-year-old Troy Middle School student who handed out Oxycontin pills to two classmates under the guise that they were aspirin was arrested Tuesday by Joliet police.

Police were called to the 5800 Theodore St. school at about 1:20 p.m. when a student alerted a counselor that the girl gave her the pill and then later told her it was a prescription painkiller, Joliet police told the Joliet Herald News.

Another student was also given a pill but threw it away, police said.

The suspect was arrested on a charge of drug possession and taken to the River Valley Juvenile Detention Center, the story said.

This isn't even the real information. I go to the school this happened at (Troy Middle School) and this is incorrect. So uh, please so commenting about how you're "scared your kids are growing up in this world". Wow.

Well fill us in on the skinny there Jess... what's the story???? As far as parents being fearful for their children... society today is nothing like when I grew up... children used to be taught about respecting others... not so much anymore.

I go to Troy Middle School and yes, those kids made a mistake and were nit doing the right thing but it could have been worse. Really... . And the story is almost exactly what they had up there. Today two students got expelled from school for dealing the drugs. Students at Troy know better but decided to act otherwise.
