FORT TOWSON — The Choctaw County Sheriff’s Department arrested a 17-year-old boy Monday at Fort Towson High School according to Undersheriff Terry Park’s report.
The report states, the juvenile’s mother had filed a complaint the week before that the boy had been missing and not attending school for about a week. On Monday, the mother, Principal Jay Thomas and DHS worker Kailee Callahan were meeting in the principal’s office when the student appeared at school.
Park said that when the boy entered, he patted him down and pulled a “clear baggy containing nine yellow pills from his right jacket pocket.” The report says the juvenile verbally stated the pills were Klonopin — a drug used to control seizures in epilepsy and for the treatment of panic disorder — and he was selling them for $2 apiece. At that time, Park placed him under arrest. The report states a Hugo pharmacy later confirmed the pills were generic Klonopin.
