A 13-year-old boy was arrested Thursday after allegedly possessing and furnishing the drug ecstasy to some students, according to police.
The student, who was not named because he is a minor, allegedly brought the drug on campus and gave it to two girls and a boy in the eighth grade.
Sgt. Michael Tryphonas of the Pleasanton Police Department said the three students had allegedly ingested the drug but it was not "significantly apparent" they were under the influence of drugs. The three students were not arrested and were turned over to their parents, and any further disciplinary actions would be decided by the school.
The presence of the drug ecstasy, Tryphonas said, is not a common occurrence at a Pleasanton middle school.
The young man will be processed through the juvenile justice system and, Tryphonas said, and could be suspended or possibly expelled.
"This particular case was more of an isolated incident," Tryphonas said. "We always encourage parents to be active and aware of what is going on and to keep an open line of communication with their children."
