3 Teens arrested after laced gummy bears send students to hospital in Alabama

IRVINGTON, Ala. (WKRG) - Three teens have been arrested after six high school students consumed drug-laced gummy bears and were sent to the hospital.

The teens, three males who are 14 to 17-years-old, are charged with distribution of a controlled substance. 

The gummy bears are believed to have been laced with a stimulant, police said.

The Mobile County Public School System confirms to News 5 that six Alma Bryant High School students are being treated at a local hospital after a teacher noticed the students behaving in a strange manner. The students are reported to now be in stable condition.

Rena Philips, a spokesperson for the school system, says a teacher noticed the students appeared to be “loopy.” Officials say out of precaution they were transported for treatment and evaluation.
