4 busted for LSD use

Teens arrested after complaints about 'very intoxicated voices'

by Glenn Wohltmann

Four teens were busted last week for being on LSD, a hallucinogen, after calls from people complaining about noise coming from an arroyo behind homes in the 5800 block of Corte Brazos, according to police reports.

Two 18-year-olds and two 17-year-olds were arrested Nov. 22 in a series of incidents that began at about 8:30 p.m. when police received a call about people fighting, yelling and running in the street. No one was found and it's unknown if the four arrested were connected, but about 90 minutes later, at 9:56 p.m., police received another call about "very intoxicated voices" coming from the creek area behind a house on Corte Brazos.

Officer Jeff Grave went into the arroyo and found three males "yelling and staggering around" on the creek trail. The three attempted to run, one fell and two stumbled away, but they didn't make it far before being taken into custody.

Christopher Chan Lojewski, 18, of Pleasanton, Ian Wesley Mills, 18, of Dublin and a 17-year-old were arrested at around 10:10 p.m. in the 5800 block of Corte Brazos for drug intoxication, specifically, LSD, according to police reports.

Mills was also arrested on one count of resisting arrest; reports said he struggled and spun away in an attempt to escape while Grave was attempting to handcuff him.

Police later made another arrest near the same location in which a 17-year old was arrested for drug intoxication, again in connection with the use of LSD.

Officer Tony Repetto came to the scene to assist Grave in making the first arrests and discovered the fourth teen at about 11:16 p.m. at the intersection of Calle Santa Anna and Golden Road.

The two older teens were treated and released from ValleyCare before being booked into the Santa Rita Jail. The two juveniles' names were not released, and it could not be confirmed if they were treated or held at the jail.

None of the kids' reactions resemble any kinds of action that result from ingestion of LSD. My hunch is that they were told it was LSD by those who sold or gave it to them when, in fact, it was some form of animal tranquilizer, perhaps laced with strychnine or some other 'stimulant'. The switcheroo whipsaw probably contributed to the kids' erratic behavior. Poor kids, expecting to experience a nice, mellow hallucinogenic journey, ended up with poison running through their veins.

It's sad how the media down plays the severity of drug use in our society, especially for these impressionable high school kids. I am sure the kids heard of the drug in some rap song and thought "if frank ocean does it why can't i?". I guess we just have Obama to thank once again for all the change he's brought us. Thanks Obama
