DEKALB COUNTY, Ala – Two Crossville High School students have been accused of smoking spice at school Friday.
DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris said a 15-year-old student brought spice to the school and smoked it with a 16-year-old. Harris said the 16-year-old had a medical reaction to the spice and went to the school resource officer for help.
An ambulance was called and the 16-year-old was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
The school resource officer contacted the DeKalb County Drug Task Force, who is assisting in the ongoing investigation.
Harris said the 15-year-old was charged with Unlawful Distribution of Controlled Substance and Tampering with Evidence. The 16-year-old was charged with Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance and Public Intoxication. Both were taken to the Juvenile Probation Office in Fort Payne.
Harris said, “This is another case showing the importance of the School Resource Officer’s and what they do for our schools.”
