Police are investigating a student who may have been selling drugs at a metro high school.
Just after Thanksgiving break, several Papillion La vista South High School students are interviewed about drugs being sold at school because one student was caught with LSD.
Sarpy County court documents indicate the student allegedly selling the drugs admitted to being able to get not only LSD but cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana. One of the transactions reportedly happened outside Trumble Park Elementary.
Jennifer Green, the Director of LiveWise Coalition, says nationally 60% of students say drugs are available at their school and dealers use it to their advantage.
"A lot of times for the different gangs and the different cartels pushing a lot of the drugs through the communities they find those easier routes and they know those teenagers that are less likely to make more socially conscious decisions, appropriate positive decisions and they have easy access to potential users out there,” Green explained
The schools do drug prevention, but LiveWise says it's up to the parents too. They say kids are 42% less likely to use drug or alcohol if their parents talk to them about it regularly versus those who don't.
The teen in question hasn't been arrested yet, so KMTV will not release their name.
The Papillion La Vista School District did not comment Friday.
LiveWise says it goes to show it happens in all school districts. For resources how to initiate conversation and how to respond when they ask you how come you can drink, visit livewisecoalition.org, or their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LiveWiseCoalition/?fref=ts
