Court documents say Fentanyl still a problem at FM schools

By  | 

WEST FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live): Now with drugs so powerful that an amount the size of pinhead can kill, it's quickly becoming more serious.

The court documents say the mother of two students at Sheyenne High School contacted the school resource officer worried that another student was selling Fentanyl in solution.

The information was sent to officers with the Cass County Drug Task Force who immediately began investigating. The Task Force found the student at the center of the accusations is on cell phone video weighing marijuana and inhaling a substance from a nasal spray bottle.

This is not the first time we've heard about these issues in West Fargo. Just about a year ago district officials were sounding the alarm.

"This isn't about being a narc or tattle telling on your friends," said Jerry Boyer with West Fargo Police in May of 2016. "This is about saving lives, pure and simple."

Valley News Live went to the address listed in the court documents, the address where investigators removed three pages worth of suspected drugs and paraphernalia. Nobody answered.

Thursday night a parent addiction forum was scheduled for Liberty Middle School at 6:30 p.m. The event's Facebook page says the presentation will highlight "the risks and protective factors associated with addiction to alcohol and drugs, including opioid use by teenagers."

We reached out to the district asking if that event is in conjunction with these latest accusations. The district says the event is the result of everything that's come to pass in the last year regarding the issues of drugs in schools. They say they can't speak to the specific situation outlined in the new court documents.
