• PGHS student overdoses on prescription pills at school

    On Dec. 4, 2012 at about 12:27 p.m., Pacific Grove Police Dept. officers responded with Monterey Fire Dept. and AMR personnel to Pacific Grove High School regarding a student who had possibly overdosed on prescription medications. The 15-year-old male was observed by school staff to be acting strangely, uncoordinated and very lethargic, and had been taken to the school nurse’s office.
    The officers determined the subject had possibly obtained four Adderall pills. Adderall is a prescription drug used in the treatment ADHD and narcolepsy. The pills were possibility obtained from another juvenile in Monterey. The subject had swallowed two of the pills, then crushed and inhaled half of a third pill.
    He then gave another 14-year-old male student the remaining pill which was then swallowed. The 14-year-old also appeared lethargic.
    The 15-year-old was transported by AMR to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula where he was treated and later released. The 14-year-old was assessed by paramedics at the school and then released to his parents.
    The Pacific Grove Police Dept., in coordination with Monterey Police Dept, identified the 17-year-old female who may have supplied the pills. She voluntarily came to the Pacific Grove Police Department After she had been interviewed, there remained questions as to the validity of claims she had provided the pills. She was not arrested.
    The case remains under investigation. If you have any information regarding this matter, please call the Pacific Grove Police Depamrtnet at 831-648-3143.
