Instead of tripping during the school day, two juveniles had a trip to Montgomery County Juvenile Court after allegedly being caught with LSD last week at North Penn High School.
Towamencin Township Police said a 16-year-old student was allegedly found in possession of seven tabs of suspected LSD and a 17-year-old student was allegedly found with one tab of LSD.
At 7:20 a.m. Dec. 5, North Penn High School security saw four students walking away from the school into a wooded area on the border of the school property, and some time later, the officer saw them walking back toward the high school, police said. At that point, they were late for school.
At first, security suspected the students with smoking and being in possession of cigarettes, police said.
After finding the alleged hallucinogenic, security called Towamencin Township Police. Police officers conducted an additional investigation to ascertain if any of the drugs had been taken, since the health of the students was the primary concern, police said.
Police said no drugs were taken and no one was under the influence.
Both were released to parents and charged through Montgomery County Juvenile Court with possession of a controlled substance, police said.
