Student questioned in pill case

By Jen Lynds, BDN Staff

DYER BROOK, Maine — A conversation between a Southern Aroostook Community School official and a student led to an awkward moment when an envelope on the youth containing pills fell to the floor.

Deputy Vance Palmer of the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department said Monday evening that the incident happened at the school last week during a basketball game.

According to Palmer, a school official went into a locker room during the game and started to talk to a male 18-year-old student when an envelope allegedly containing 17 oxycodone pills fell to the floor.

School officials called police. Sheriff’s department and Maine Drug Enforcement Agency agents went to the school and questioned the youth.

He was not taken into custody.

The student reportedly said that a 17-year-old female juvenile student supplied him with the pills.

No charges have been filed so far, according to Palmer, but they are pending against both teens.
