Hospitalization of Pleasantville Teens Leads to Drug Charges

A Pleasantville teen faces drug charges following a pair of incidents in which he and another teen were hospitalized for possible prescription drug overdoses. The 16-year-old male is charged with Delivery of a Controlled Substance – an aggravated misdemeanor. An investigation by the Pleasantville Police Department determined that the teen possessed a prescription drug in pill form and also made it available to a 14-year-old male juvenile who was also hospitalized.

Both hospitalizations occurred within hours of each other this past Monday, with the arrest made on Friday. The Pleasantville Police Department continues to investigate the matter, with further arrests pending.
