PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Pulaski say they’re confident that no one else is involved in a high school prescription drug ring, other than the 10 former students who face charges.
Only one appears to be heading to adult court – a 17-year-old boy whose case is being reviewed by Brown County prosecutors.
Seven boys and two girls ranging in age from 14 to 16 have been referred for possible juvenile delinquency actions in the counties where they live – Brown, Shawano, and Oconto.
Pulaski Police say the ringleader in the operation was 14, and most of the drugs sold were the students’ own medicines aimed at treating attention deficit disorder. Officials said some students also stole pills from family members, including pain-killers.
Authorities were tipped off to the drug ring in early December through a student program that’s similar to Crime Stoppers.
One student left the Pulaski district, and the other nine were expelled.
