Troy Student Accused of 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 school, 5800 Theodore St., 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.

What was this kids real agenda? Do you think maybe he or she was trying to hurt the people they gave the drugs to? Police should look into that aspect because they could have a little killer here.....
