Two youths are treated for apparent LSD use


Two county youths have been treated at North Arundel Hospital this week after apparently ingesting LSD in two unrelated incidents, county police said yesterday.

Police would not release the boys' names. A spokesman at North Arundel Hospital would neither confirm nor deny if either boy had ingested LSD.

Police charged a 14-year-old Glen Burnie youth as a juvenile with selling LSD in the second case.

He was released to his parents, said Officer Randy Bell, a police spokesman.

The most recent incident occurred Wednesday morning.

A 13-year-old student at Chesapeake High School told police he chewed and swallowed a small piece of paper about 8:30 a.m.

The boy went to the health room after another student told him he had possibly taken LSD.

The boy became "hyper" in the health room, Officer Bell said, and was taken to North Arundel Hospital, where he was treated.

Police said the boy gave them the name of the supplier, but they are not sure whether the youth bought the drug or if it was given to him, Officer Bell said.

The first incident occurred about noon Monday outside Old Mill Middle School. A 15-year-old Millersville boy told police he had ingested two "hits" of LSD. He went to the health room after he reacted to the drug and was taken to North Arundel Hospital, Officer Bell said.

School officials and police were not sure if the incident occurred at Old Mill Middle School North or Old Mill Middle School South.

The boy told police that he bought the LSD from a Glen Burnie youth for $5, police said.

When police searched the boy's book bag, they found one clear plastic bag of suspected marijuana, a silver smoking device and a pen cap smoking device with unknown residue in them and a playing card wrapped in a paper towel with an unknown residue in it, police said.

That youth faces charges of drug possession, according to Officer Bell.

Neither police nor school officials could say whether the boys were students at Old Mill Middle School.
