Pos­si­ble anx­i­ety drug use at lo­cal school investigated

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Au­thor­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter stu­dents at a Loudoun County school shared drinks pos­si­bly laced with a drug used to treat anx­i­ety last week.

Loudoun County Sher­iff’s Of­fice spokesman Kraig Trox­ell said they’re in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port that some stu­dents at River Bend Mid­dle School shared drinks con­tain­ing Al­pra­zo­lam on Friday.

Al­pra­zo­lam is a generic drug also known as Xanax.

Loudoun County Public Schools spokesman Wayde Byard says a nurse at the school checked the stu­dents. The in­tox­i­cated chil­dren were sent home.

Au­thor­i­ties are try­ing to de­ter­mine if this in­ci­dent is con­nected to two stu­dents at Po­tomac Falls High School who were found with a pos­si­ble mix­ture of Al­pra­zo­lam last Friday.
