22 High School Students Arrested in Undercover Drug Bust

Undercover cops posing as 11th grade students arrest 22 students at Riverside County high schools in drug bust. After a semester-long investigation, authorities seize crack, cocaine, meth, marijuana and prescription pills.

Male and female narcotics officers were able to pass themselves off as two high school students for the entirety of a school semester, ultimately leading to the arrests of 22 students at Southern California high schools, authorities announced.

Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies walked onto two campuses Thursday morning during second period, armed with 25 arrest warrants, the department said in a statement.

Serina Ramirez, 18, and Erick De La Cruz, 19 were the only two adults of the 22 arrested. They were arrested at Perris High School. Three students were absent from school that day and are still at large.

Ramirez is being held at $60,000 bail and is due to appear in court Dec. 16, while De La Cruz is being held on $35,000 bail and is due to also appear in court on Dec. 16, jail records show. Jail records also show that De La Cruz is suspected of crimes involving marijuana, while Ramirez is suspected of crimes involving other controlled substances.

The remainder were arrested at Paloma Valley High School and booked at Juvenile Hall.

Trevor Steinrichter, 16, told the Riverside Press Enterprise, “Scary. I saw my friend get arrested.”

Marijuana appeared to be most of the busted student’s drug of choice, with authorities saying that most of the buys were for small amounts of the drug.

Drug use has been a recurring problem in the desert areas of east Los Angeles County, which is why Sheriff’s deputies chose to target these areas.

Last year approximately 24 dozen students were arrested at Riverside County high schools.
