High School Students Arrested for Selling Drugs to Police

If not, then let me give you a quick breakdown of the movie: a woman in her 20s goes back to high school, poses as a teenager, and gets to know the students. It’s a cute movie, but I always thought it seemed a little unrealistic. However, after ten high school students were arrested last week by an undercover police officer who had been posing as a fellow student for four months, I guess it seems a little bit more realistic to me now.

On January 11, 2012, 10 students from Angleton High in Texas were arrested for selling prescription drugs and marijuana. They were discovered by an undercover police officer who was pretending to be a fellow student. The police department will not say whether the undercover officer was male or female, but that he/she is “very young looking.”

“Basically the school district reached out to us,” said Lt. Chris Reioux, head of the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office narcotics division. “We provided the undercover officer and funded the operation and they took care of getting the officer enrolled in the school.”

Five of the students who were arrested are over 18, while the other five will be face charges as juveniles. Their names have not been released yet. Two former students were also arrested. There have been 28 separate charges filed against these people related to selling drugs to the undercover officer.
