Students Nabbed in Drug Busts At Temecula High Schools

TEMECULA, Calif. (KTLA) — Nearly two dozen high school students from the Temecula Valley School District were taken into custody Tuesday as part of an undercover drug operation.

Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department escorted several students out of class at three of the district’s high schools at approximately 8:30 a.m., according to a statement from the district.

15 students were detained without incident from Temecula Valley High School, five from Chaparral High School and two from Rancho Vista Continuation High School.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Bureau had been conducting the long-term investigation.

Deputies seized various illegal narcotics, including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroine, LSD, and illegal prescription drugs.

Two of those arrested were adults. The 20 minors were transported to Juvenile Hall and booked on narcotics charges.

The district issued a statement: “Our district adheres to a zero tolerance policy in regards to drug use. The education and safety of all students on our campus is our top priority.

“Anything that may prohibit this from happening on our campus will always be dealt with in a swift and efficient manner.”

      Here’s the reality:
      No matter what high school you go to, there WILL be students who do drugs. It’s inevitable. Regardless of the number of them caught, every school has tons of people who do drugs. Honestly it is up to the student to make the right decision. Some do, some don’t. With this being said, people need to stop associating our school as a school full of druggies because that’s true for all schools. And to the comment before me, taking your daughter out of tvhs isn’t going to change anything. If she chooses to do drugs, that’s her fault-not the school’s. If your in high school, you should be able to make decisions on your own. Trying to keep your student in a bubble is by no means beneficial. Also, people don’t just hand out drugs, you have to be asking around for them to be given them.

      These kids are far from white scum. Temecula median income is 64k per year. The parents of the kids are both at work and these kids can do what ever they want and they have the money to do so.

    One of the students has an autism diagnosis, and after two days in custody, the judge dismissed the charges against him. And the autism is very obvious. In a time when journalists actually checked on facts, this would have been a very significant issue, so ATTENTION JOURNALISTS, this is a good place to start.
