Troopers Respond to PV High Drug-Related Incidents

COLLEGEVILLE PA – Alleged drug possession involved in two separate and unrelated incidents at Perkiomen Valley High School on Gravel Pike attracted responses Tuesday and Thursday (Sept. 21 and 23, 2021) from Pennsylvania State Police at the Troop K Barracks in Skippack, according to its public information releases.

One of the incidents resulted in the hospitalization of a student, troopers said. The other reportedly resulted in two students’ arrests.

Student hospitalization

Troopers arrived Tuesday at 10:45 a.m. at the high school following a call that a “juvenile male student (had) experienced symptoms of drug usage.” Medical treatment was provided to the student at the scene, they added, and he was subsequently “transported to a local hospital,” which was not specified.

During the course of their investigation, troopers allegedly determined “that another student provided a smoking device containing a suspected controlled substance.” The release did not indicate if suspects in the incident had been identified or if anyone was arrested.

Student arrests

Two students, identified by troopers as a 17-year-old male from Schwenksville and a 16-year-old female from Collegeville, on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. allegedly were “found to be in possession of drugs” on the high school property and were arrested,” their release stated. An “investigation continues,” it added.
