The school day started with a crush of cops on the campuses of three Temecula Valley high schools.

In the end, 20 juvenile students were in handcuffs, and two adult students were headed to jail cells.

A long time undercover operation from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department focused on a variety of drugs.

According to the Murrieta Patch, the investigation resulted in the seizure of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin LSD, and prescription drugs.

There were a number of agencies that assisted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department with the arrests.

They included the Southwest Corridor Narcotics Task Force, West County Narcotics Task Force, the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and Temecula Police Department Special Enforcement Team.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit, the latest generation of home drug testing, and CVS Pharmacy, your trusted source for home health care products.

Teensavers is proud to be part of a program that was created by Phelps County, Missouri leaders, including the Sheriff, and prosecutor.

Here is their press release

  • In the two months that local law enforcement agencies began offering free drug testing kits in Phelps County, a total of 120 kits have been distributed to parents.Both the Rolla Police Department and Phelps County Sheriff’s Department began offering the kits Aug. 13.“If 120 test kits go out and 120 kids are protected, it would be a success, but because of the confidentiality of the program, we don’t know what happened,” said Sgt. Andy Davis, of the sheriff’s office.

    “It gives a reason for a child to say no (to drugs) if they know, “I will possibly be drug tested by my parents,’ ” said Rolla Police Chief Mark Kearse.

    Both Davis and Kearse said they did not know how many kits they expected to give away through the program.

    The program was started as an effort to curb drug abuse among youth and is being supported by the sheriff’s office, Rolla police department and the county prosecutor’s office.

    The program is strictly voluntary. To qualify for the Teensavers kits, people simply need to be a resident anywhere in Phelps County and have at least one child who is 17 years old or younger.

    The kits were purchased with drug seizure funds. No taxpayer funds were used.

    Each kit comes with a urine test container, instructions, parental support guide, self-addressed mailing container and confidential identification number.

    The confidential number, guide and test container come sealed in a tamper proof pouch so only the parent who opens it has access to those items, guaranteeing the child and test results are only accessible to the parent. The parent is in full control.

    The kits test for 12 substances — THC (marijuana), cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, opiates, PCP, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methadone, oxycodone, MDMA and tricyclic antidepressants.

    These drugs can be detected with a urine test when they have been in the body for two or three days or up to two weeks depending on the type of drug.

    The kits are easy to use and easy to read, offer confidential results and 24/7 support and have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

    The kits come with a small shipping box to mail the sample off to a laboratory, which can confirm the preliminary results. The lab only has the identification number and has no idea who the sample belongs to. Parents can check the results of the lab’s test online or by phone.

    Law enforcement do not know the results and no tests take place at the sheriff’s office or police department.

    For questions about the kits, people may contact Cpl. Mike Kirn at 573-426-3860 or Lt. James Macormic at 573-308-1213.

     

30 people are facing charges in connection with a pill distribution ring that pushed painkillers.

Several others could be arrested as investigators comb through the evidence that they’ve already gathered.

The only thing worse than a death related to an overdose, is when the death could have been prevented.

Teensavers is applauding the work of Senator Joe Vitale (D-Middlesex.)

A new law, proposed by the Senator, is in the works that would give immunity to 9-1-1 callers who are present when someone they are with overdoses.

Citing the death of comedian Greg Giraldo, the New Jersey newssite NJ.com, breaks down the proposed law.

Teensavers believes this is a much needed law across the entire country.

It’s not just the rich and famous who die like Giraldo. Teens, fearing arrest, often bail when one of their friends overdoses.

Not only should more Good Samaritan Emergency Response Acts be proposed, but they need to be publicized to let teens know that they won’t be in trouble for trying to save a friend’s life.

The Teensavers team had heard about “Overtaken,” a movie produced by two Orange County moms, but we hadn’t had a chance to see it until now.

The driving force behind the film are Jodi Barber and Christine Brant.

Jodi lost her son Jarrod to a powerful drug cocktail. He died on the couch while watching a movie. His friends thought he was sleeping.

Overtaken is a movie that can open the eyes of children and parents, as these first-hand accounts of these survivors will show you that drugs can affect any family.

You can watch the movie on the production company’s website by clicking HERE.

If you want to know who is making the effort to save lives not only in Orange County, but across the country, look no further than these two women.

It doesn’t matter where you live, there are addicts all around you.    Millions of people are struggling with drugs.   They are good people who started off making a bad decision.

It’s not just adults abusing drugs.  While 40 people die each day from painkillers, more teens are experimenting with pills.

Addicts are generally the same.

But their stories are very different.

They may have arrived at the same place, but they took many roads to get there.

I wanted you to read this story of a woman’s transition into drugs.

You can read the first person account from the Madeleine Brand show by clicking here.

An investigation ended in the arrest of a man authorities say ran a major pill ring in New York state.

They also arrested four associates.

Authorities say that Michael Mancusi and his girlfriend had $84,000 worth of medications, including 5,890 tablets of oxycodone, approximately 1,170 tablets of Xanax, and approximately 205 fentanyl transdermal patches.

COULD YOUR TEEN BE EXPERIMENTING WITH DRUGS THIS SUMMER? DON’T GUESS. THE TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT IS AN ALLY TO PARENTS. CLICK HERE TO MAKE SURE YOUR KIDS START THE SCHOOL YEAR DRUG-FREE WITH THE HELP OF THE TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT.

The drugs sold for anywhere from $5 to $30 per pill or patch

So How did they get the drugs in the first place?

The AG’s office says that Mancusi was in two doctors offices, and made claims for no-fault insurance benefits and obtained Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare benefits.

At that point, the office says he went doctor shopping, accumulating thousands of pills in a short time.

The arrest removes these pills out of the hands of addicts across the state, and keeps them from falling into first time teen experimenters.

More than 2,500 kids try prescription drugs for the first time every day, and these types of operations can be the source of these pills. Teensavers also reminds parents that unlocked medicines in the home are an open invitation for experimentation.
