Seven Teens Arrested on Drug Charges
Charges include possession or substrances, paraphernalia
Investigations into illegal drug activity on school grounds conducted by the Kalispell Police Department school resource officer and the Glacier High School administration have led to the arrest of teenagers.

All of those arrested are males, between 14 and 15 years old. Two of the teens were arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, one was arrested for possession of drugs, and the remaining four were arrested for criminal distribution of drugs on or near school property.

According to School Resource Officer Jason Parce, the initial information about the drug activity came from concerned students, school district staff and parents. Two of the four investigations began as theft cases, Parce said, and led to the discovery of illicit drug activity.

The seized drugs included marijuana and prescription medications.

All of the teens were arrested on school grounds and have been disciplined in accordance with School District 5 policy, Parce said, and their cases have been referred to Flathead County Youth Court.

"These investigations and subsequent arrests are a result of a cooperation and increased awareness, vigilance, and proactivity by students, staff, parents, administration and law enforcement personnel," Parce said in a prepared statement.

KPD encourages anyone with information regarding illegal drug activity in Kalispell schools to call 758-7780.

Parents of these kids should pay all costs incurred by the government to do the job they should have done. Da
