OZARK, Mo. – The Christian County Juvenile Justice Department released more details on Tuesday about the Ozark High School students caught with prescription drugs on campus. All of the students involved are under 17 years old.
Juvenile officers say they finally have all the reports in this prescription drug abuse case, and 10 students are involved. Two are being investigated for distributing prescription pills; the other eight are in trouble for possession. Whether it's distribution or possession, both could be felonies.
"We have numerous school districts in Christian County and we see it at the majority of them. We've seen reports in the last few years of this same type of activity,” said juvenile officer Terri Goodall.
"Whether it's a kid’s own medication that was prescribed by a doctor or from a parent's medicine cabinet, it happens all the time,” said Goodall.
