3 Students Arrested in Prescription Drug Case

October 20, 2000

LOS ALAMITOS — Police have arrested three Los Alamitos High School students for allegedly supplying classmates with prescription painkillers.

Officials believe some of those pills caused three students to pass out in class Wednesday morning.

A 17-year-old Cypress boy was arrested Wednesday and booked on suspicion of distributing a controlled substance, Los Alamitos Police Capt. Todd Mattern said. A 16-year-old Seal Beach boy was arrested a short time later and booked on suspicion of distributing and possessing a controlled substance. A 14-year-old boy from Seal Beach was arrested at the high school on Thursday and booked on suspicion of furnishing a controlled substance.

A large stash of white tablets believed to be prescription painkillers was found at the 16-year-old's Seal Beach home. Officials are testing them to determine their content.
